Animal control officer rescues deer from heavy machinery

Police in Ohio said an animal control officer responded to a business to rescue a baby deer that wandered into the facility and hid in some heavy machinery.

The Brunswick Police Department said in a Facebook post that Animal Control Officer Mike Kellums was dispatched to a Brunswick business to help a fawn find its way out of the building after hiding in some heavy machinery.

The department said Kellums played “a short game of hide and seek” to locate the baby deer before successfully capturing the uninjured animal.

“Kellums was able to rescue the baby deer and return her to the wild where she will hopefully reunite with mama deer,” the post said.
