Video: Hermantown officer rescues trapped fawn


A Hermantown, Minn., police officer rescued a fawn that had gotten trapped in storm culvert, WDIO reports.

Chief Jim Crace writes on the department's Facebook page that the fawn, crying out for its mother, had gotten stuck and wasn't able to back out. Crace said officers dug out a dirt blockage and then used a "catch pole" to pull the animal to safety. The fawn promptly scampered away into the woods, FOX 21 notes.

They have a soft spot for deer in Hermantown. A woman there last month used a pole to rescue a doe with its head caught in a jar.
