Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Firefighters and animal rescuers in Britain came to the rescue of a deer found wedged upside-down in a narrow gap between two houses.

The RSPCA said personnel responded alongside the Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service when the muntjac deer was found stuck in Lough.

The rescuers used ropes and poles to gently pull the deer to safety.

"This was a tricky rescue because the deer was trapped so tightly and to complicate matters was also upside down -- it must have been terrifying for him. Thankfully he was freed and it was such a relief to watch him run free into the undergrowth," Animal Rescue Officer Karen Nix said in an RSPCA news release.
