Oregon Cop Rescues Baby Deer Stuck in Fence

A police officer rescued a baby deer that got stuck in a fence in Tigard, Oregon, the department said.

In a Facebook post on July 11, the Tigard Police Department explained how Community Service Officer Petersen responded to a call on SW Ascension Drive about a trapped fawn.

Bodycam footage shows how he was able to get the fawn safely released so it could reunite with its family on the other side of the fence. Credit: Tigard Police Department via Storyful
