PERHAM, Minn. — Otter Tail County sheriff's deputies freed a deer that had become tangled in a garden hose near Big Pine Lake.

A landowner was checking out his property in the woods, when he found a young buck tangled up in a hose attached to a post.

Deputies Scott Wagner and Nate Selander carefully approached the deer and cut the hose that was wrapped around its antlers.

The landowner told WDAY News that the deer was a little dizzy from running in circles so long, but eventually ran off.
