Fayetteville firefighters responded to an unusual call on Sunday afternoon.
Two deer were found hooked together by their antlers in a backyard on the east side of town. With one being close to death, firefighters worked quickly to separate the animals.
In order to save the deer, firefighters ended up sawing off one of the deer’s antlers.
Firefighters say antlers shedding off is normal in the wild and both deer should be okay.
