This deer sure got herself into a pickle.
We've seen a lot of unique deer rescue stories this winter. But this may be the best one yet. Somehow this poor deer found itself in one of the more ridiculous predicaments we've seen yet.
In this footage from near Pocatello, Idaho, this doe has her head stuck in a barrel and only a human can save it from a slow and painful death.
The rough winter in Idaho and many other western states has made some animals seek out food sources in less traditional locations. We're guessing that's how this animal ended up in this predicament.
It's amazing how relatively calm the animal remained during the rescue. Just a little bit of a struggle and only a few scared vocalizations. Sometimes animals just know when humans are there to help rather than harm.
We don't know who the man who helped get this deer free is, but we'd just like to say good job on a fine rescue sir!
