'Oh deer oh deer' - That is what firefighters in Norfolk were saying this morning after being called to multiple incidents of deers stuck in railings.
At 7.30am, a crew from Diss were called to a muntjac that had got stuck in railings at Hawthorne Close, near to Diss Train Station. The crew were able to free the deer without any need for equipment before it was returned to the wild at 8.18pm.
Just half an hour after the first call to a muntjac stuck in railings, a crew from Thetford were called to another muntjac stuck in Haling Way, Thetford.
The crew had to use a hydraulic arm to free the animal which was returned to the wild at 8.44am.
In both cases, the animals were released unharmed and no animal recuse services attended.
