YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - Yonkers police officers gave a helping hand to a deer which somehow became entangled in a makeshift hammock.

Video posted by the Yonkers Police Department shows the large deer caught up in the hammock behind a local residence - desperately trying to free itself from the ropes that entangled its antlers. The video shows Yonkers Emergency Service Unit officers Matt Donaldson and Dave MacDonald tranquilizing the animal and cutting it free from the hammock.

The deer then darted off into the nearby brush quickly after getting cut free, with parts of the hammock hanging from its antlers.
