A buck found himself in dire straits after walking into “carelessly hung holiday lights” in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Fortunately, the buck was found before he suffered a slow, miserable death.

The concerning situation was recounted by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife agency which Tweeted images and recounted the scenario:

Our latest #wildlife #rescue, by @COParksWildlife    Office Cassidy English, is a buck that stumbled into carelessly hung holiday lights in #ColoradoSprings. The deer thrashed so long and hard the lights were knotted around its antlers, in its mouth and around it’s neck.

Explaining the danger the buck was in from being helplessly tangled in the cords:

This buck’s vision was obscured making it vulnerable around cars. With wires wrapped in its mouth, it likely couldn’t eat or drink. It might have starved. Had it jumped a fence, the cords might have gotten caught and hung the animal. Please decorate with #wildlife in mind.

Fortunately, the buck will be okay thanks to the wildlife agency’s intervention.

Great work! Please be mindful of what you put outdoors and its potential impact on area wildlife.
