MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– Colorado Parks and Wildlife is warning Colorado residents about leaving up sports netting, holiday decorations and hammocks after a deer got caught up in some netting. Agents helped untangle a deer from sport netting in Manitou Springs.

CPW also said this is mating season for deer, also known as rutting season. That means that deer can be easily agitated by any object, person or animal that gets in their way.
