Colorado Parks & Wildlife recently came to the rescue of a trapped buck in Manitou Springs.

A taser had to be used on the poor guy so officers could free him. He almost had the entire goal wrapped up in his antlers; one only knows how long he had been struggling for freedom.

We recently shared an article exposing just how often this type of thing happens to our wildlife, including several photos of Colorado wildlife with netting in their antlers. I wonder if they experienced the same kind of thrashing that his guy had to endure in order to rip themselves free.
