Talk about being between a rock and a hard place. Rescuers from the UK-based Wildlife Aid Foundation were called out to recover a young deer that managed to fall into a 12-foot gap between a shed and a brick wall. The crack was only 10 inches across, but volunteers were able to lasso the deer back to safety.
“It was so narrow that no one could have got down to the deer. After much consideration and discussion, a risky but ingenious plan was formed,” Wildlife Aid wrote in the YouTube video’s description. “There was only one chance to get this right; had it gone wrong, the deer would, almost certainly, have broken a leg or, worse still, died.”
Fortunately, the volunteers found the tiny deer relatively unscathed and released it back into the wild.
