A Couple Found A Deer Caught Up In Someone’s Christmas Lights In Their Backyard. A Patient Rescue Operation Followed…

A new video tells a heartwarming story of a couple who did go the proverbial extra mile to help rid a confused and scared deer of the Christmas lights and connecting wires he had managed to tangle himself into.

Tom Valentine, who uploaded the video about a month ago, writes:

We found a deer in the backyard that had gotten tangled up in someone’s Christmas lights. They were tangled around his antlers and leg. We wanted to help.

Tom and his wife are filmed patiently trying to earn the deer’s trust, so he can come close enough for the couple to untangle the wires from his antlers and front leg.

It is a painfully slow process, as the wild animal is naturally cautious. Not to be deterred, the couple keep at it and slowly begin to make some progress.

At one point the woman uses an apple to entice the animal and the couple manage to keep him around long enough for the rescue operation to eventually succeed. Great job!
