Grand Rapids Police Free Deer Stuck In Hammock

MINNEAPOLS (WCCO) -- Two police officers in Grand Rapids helped free an ensnared deer last week, but it wasn't a hunter's trap that caught the animal.

Instead, the buck snagged its antlers in a hammock. The apparently frightened animal struggled to free itself before the officers stepped in, cutting the hammock to release the antlers.

Oh deer.... Take a look at two GRPD officers help free a buck???? that was trapped in a hammock!
