Group res­cues deer with head stuck in plas­tic pump­kin bucket

Imperial Valley Press - - OPINION -

A deer that got its head trapped in an or­ange plas­tic pump­kin bucket is free af­ter res­i­dents in sub­ur­ban Cincin­nati spent the week­end track­ing it.

WCPO-TV re­ports the An­der­son Town­ship Fam­ily Pet Cen­ter got calls over four days from res­i­dents con­cerned about the deer with the bucket stuck over its nose.

Daryl Mey­er­renke at the pet cen­ter warned that it would be dan­ger­ous for neigh­bors to try to res­cue the deer, but he says they were de­ter­mined to help the an­i­mal and spent hours fol­low­ing it through wooded ar­eas.

Even­tu­ally, the group us­ing an­i­mal catch poles was able to en­cir­cle the deer, and Mey­er­renke’s son freed it from the bucket.

Mey­er­renke says the an­i­mal im­me­di­ately went to graze and drink water at a creek.
