Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Conservation agents in Missouri rescued a deer that wandered onto a construction site and became trapped in the basement foundation.
The Missouri Department of Conservation said Cpl. Aaron Post and Cpl. Doug Yeager responded to a Kansas City area neighborhood after a resident spotted a deer trapped in the newly poured basement foundation of a home under construction.
The foundation did not have stairs or an exit door, so the agents attempted to build a ramp out of scrap lumber, but the animal attempted to hide behind the wood.
The men ended up lassoing the deer and lifting it out of the basement. The deer was released unharmed.
