General | April 4, 2019

A woman who lives in central California was mortified when she saw a deer stuck in and dangling from a neighbor’s metal fence. It happened in Lodi, a small community about 35 miles south of Sacramento.

“It was thrashing around so at this point I called 9-1-1,” Rhonda Perry Parker, nearby neighbor, told KOVR-TV. “I was scared it was going to lose its life,” she added.

After two calls to 9-1-1, firefighters arrived, and received permission from the homeowner to use the Jaws of Life to spread the metal bars apart and free the deer.
