Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Animal rescuers in California shared photos of a deer that accidentally decorated its antlers for the holidays.

Marin Humane said an animal services officer responded to a home in San Anselmo, where she encountered a buck with its antlers covered in Christmas lights.


The group said the officer was unable to catch the deer to remove the lights, but officials believe the deer is nearing the time of the year when it will shed its antlers, and also lose the lights in the process.

"But this serves as a good reminder that when hanging holiday decorations, make sure they're secure and high enough where they're less likely to be an issue for wildlife -- as opposed to being draped over bushes, as these lights may have been," Marine Humane said.
