Cops Rescue 'Bambi,' The Baby Deer Trapped In Soccer Net In Menasha, Wisconsin

Police in Wisconsin recently responded to an unusual emergency: a baby deer had somehow managed to get itself tangled in a soccer net at a local park.

Dashcam video from Sept. 20 shows the two officers in Menasha, Wis., working during a nighttime thunderstorm to free the little fawn. Occasional bursts of lightning illuminates the rescue effort.

"Bambi went home," one of the officers says as the creature runs off -- but the night's work wasn't over yet.

The two cops also fixed the soccer net.

On Facebook, the department is calling the pair their "deer whisperers."
