Fenced-in fawn now footloose and fancy free

Wildlife officers successfully stepped in to rescue of baby deer found wedged between the bars of a fence on British Columbia.

The fawn was found stuck between the bars of a fence in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, the B.C. Conservation Officer Service announced Thursday.

Wildlife officers intervened to give it some “wiggle” room.
