On March 15th, a man in the village of Victor called DEC’s Avon Office about a deer that was stuck in a backyard fence. The deer’s right hind leg had gotten stuck in the chain links as it attempted to jump the fence.
ECO Keith Levanway arrived on scene and saw that the deer was suspended off the ground. He quickly used a pair of wire cutters while trying to steady the deer that desperately wanted to get away. After a few clips, the deer limped off, slightly favoring his right leg.
The deer was spotted a short time later in good health and bounding off into the woods.
