Police in North Carolina rescue deer stuck in mud hole

MORRISVILLE, N.C. — Police said they rescued a deer that was stuck in a mud hole Saturday in Morrisville, according to the department’s Facebook page.

Morrisville Fire and police said they were called to Mason Farm/Ferntree where they found the deer trapped.

“We are certainly accustomed to rescuing ducklings from drains and otherwise keeping our furry critters safe. However, this was one for the books!” the police department said in a Facebook post.

Officers said with a little creativity and a few pallets they were able to rescue the deer.

“Clearly taking social distancing to the extreme,” they said in the post, “Just one of the many things that makes our jobs worth it!”
