Deer trapped upside-down while homeowner mounts a rescue

From the opening seconds of this video, it’s clear that the upside-down deer definitely misjudged its jumping prowess when it tried to clear a backyard fence.

With its hind legs trapped, the deer struggles to free itself while the homeowner does his best to assist.

This is the latest in a steady stream of trapped deer videos which have surfaced on the internet lately, a trend which could be explained by an early spring. However, the growing affordability of video-enabled smartphones may just mean that more of these events are captured.

Either way, we’re glad this distressed deer survived its run-in with the fence seemingly unharmed, and will live to jump another day.
