Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Wildlife officials and sheriff's deputies worked together in Nebraska to rescue two white-tailed bucks locked together by the antlers.
A video captured by the rescuers Sunday in a wooded area of Waverly shows Nebraska Game and Parks officers and Lancaster County sheriff's deputies working together to rescue the two deer after the animals became antler-locked while fighting.
One of the deer initially appears to be dead, but the rescuers soon discover it is still alive, just exhausted.
The rescuers remark that the deer are in the rutting season, which makes them extra aggressive and territorial.
The officers and deputies are eventually able to cut through an antler, freeing the two deer. They said both animals were able to walk away without serious injuries.
