DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – South Metro firefighters earned some extra high fives Monday afternoon after they rescued a deer from a window well. The buck stood there as the firefighters used what they had available to get it out.

They say a resident found the deer “thrashing” inside the well clearly in need of help.

Members on Engine 47 used a piece of a wooden fence in order “to prevent broken glass” and another tool.

After a few moments, the buck tried to jump out. That’s when firefighters tried other means.

That’s when firefighters wrapped rope around the animal’s antlers and pulled it out of the well. The buck ended up running away after untangling itself from the rope.
