It happened at Episcopal School of Knoxville, Tenn., where teachers arrived around 8:30 a.m. to find a deer entangled in one of the soccer goals on the athletic field. So brave rescuers Greg Turnbow, Gary Phillips, Jr. and Mathew Luce snapped into action, and carefully cut loose the net to free the deer.
“The way she was struggling she was going to lose consciousness pretty quickly,” said Luce. “Her neck was tied up and constricted. So it was good we got there when we did.”
Of course in my imagination, the newly-freed deer bounds across the field — directly into the other soccer goal. D’oh!
