My 8 point friend got into a little bit of a situation. The hammock was so tightly embedded on his antlers from thrashing. After he was sedated it took almost 10 minutes to cut the hammock off. It was extremely hard to cut from being soaking wet, lots of twigs, branches and wet leaves entangled with it. After everything was cut off I gave him a reversal, it took about 10 minutes for him to fully wake up. First time I ever saw one get up that fast and immediately jump a fence.... he was out of sight in seconds Thank you so much @amherstpoliceny Cyndi for always willing to assist!!

Not sure how long Prince was stuck. Usually in these situations if nothing is broken and no bad injuries I can get them out and they are on their way. Having his leg stuck that high up with hoof separated because of the chain link fence I wasn’t sure if anything was broken or injured badly. I sedated him for safety and transportation. The gentleman who called helped me lift him straight up and over. Once home I checked for breaks, thankfully none. His hair is rubbed off and red in many spots, a few scratches from thrashing. After waking up I could tell he still had loss of circulation in his leg. I’m happy to see him up and semi using it. Few more days and I think he’ll be ok. This is a huge problem with an older fawn. Prince is about 5 months old. He could jump that fence with no worries but I’m positive he’s walked through that 12” gap countless times following mom after she jumped it. All summer fawns walk through these openings and then one day those few extra pounds (we all get them) makes it impossible to continue through. If you have gaps in your fencing please try to close them up. Before I left we put a board up to match the stockade fencing Make sure you swipe to see full video #bestnonpayingjobever
