MIAMI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Miami Township fire crews came to the rescue of a helpless deer who somehow managed to get trapped in a fence Monday morning.

The department posted a photo to Twitter of the deer lodged between iron bars of the residential fence.

The homeowner noticed the struggling deer when he went outside to grab his morning paper, a Miami Twp. official said.

Firefighters were able to spread the bars and free the deer. Officials say the animal did not appear to be injured as he ran off into the woods.

Firefighters say they’ve seen trapped deer before, but it’s been a few years since they have responded to a similar animal rescue call.
