Watch Grand Rapids Minnesota Police Free A Buck Stuck In Hammock
You often hear stories about animals getting stuck in odd places before being rescued. Just off the top of my head I can think of several incidents in the Northland alone.
Cats getting stuck in trees are common, but I also remember reading about a black bear being stuck in a dumpster near Hermantown and it seems that deer getting stuck after falling through thin ice on a lake happens every year.
Heck, in my own personal life I've had to help untangle my dog from a soccer net in our yard and attempt to escort a bird out of our house after it paid us a visit after chowing down on the bird feeder.
All that being said, I can't recall ever seeing what the Grand Rapids Police Department recently had to deal with. I'm sure when the call came in saying there was a buck stuck in a hammock, they were wondering if it was the real deal.
It turns out, it was an actual situation and a challenging one at that. Not only were they dealing with a stuck animal in panic mode, but this animal had a rack on it's head that could do some damage if they were struck by it.
With a couple pair of gloves and a blanket, these officers handled the situation perfectly, a you can see in the video below.
When you watched that, did you think the buck would get stuck once again on his way out? I know I did, but luckily he ran off safely and the only thing hurt was the hammock itself.
