On Friday September 1st our deputies responded to an injured animal call. Usually these can require deputies to put the injured animal down, which is not a fun thing to have to do. When deputies got to this call they saw an Elk who had gotten his antlers very tangled in the rope of a tree swing. With a delay for other agencies to respond our deputies stepped up to the challenge of freeing this young bull elk.
Watch as the deputy attempts to calm the elk, has a close call, but ultimately gets him free from his predicament.
(This is extremely dangerous and we would never want you to try this at home)
