“This deer found himself in a tight place with no way out! You never know what the next call will bring!” the department captioned the Facebook post. The firefighters shared video of the deer’s rescue. Using a combination of straps and a blanket over the deer’s head to keep him from panicking, they worked together to haul him out of the manhole.


After successfully pulling the deer out of the sewer, the firefighters carefully removed the blanket and straps and watched happily as he sprung to his feet and ran off into the woods.
