Crews rescue deer from railings

Romney House, Romney Avenue, Lockleaze, Bristol

Firefighters have rescued a deer after it became stuck in railings.

On arrival crews found the animal with its head and front legs through the metal railings, unable to get out.

While one firefighter held the deer’s antlers, the others managed to work its body free from the railings. Initially it appeared to be a little stunned, but after a short time it ran off into a small wooded area nearby.
