The adult buck got tangled in the net and then managed to get its antlers stuck in the statue after it roamed on to a tennis court at a property in Tewin in Hertfordshire.

The concerned property owners contacted the RSPCA.

An officer attended, before contacting Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue Service to help with the rescue.

They used a large tarpaulin to place over the top of the deer in order to get it to the ground.

It took four firefighters to hold the buck down.

They then managed to cut the netting off, and free it from the statue. It then ran off.
