Volunteers from the East Sussex Wildlife and Rescue Ambulance have freed two deer whose antlers become stuck together during what is believed to have been a fight.
The rescuers think that a piece of rope on one of the deer's antlers somehow became entangled with the other animal's horns - locking the two together. The team used a special 'walk-towards' net to gain control of the deer, then cut the animals free from the rope and each other.
Untying the animals from the rope once they were put in the net took ten minutes. The deer were then released and both ran off. The incident happened at Dallington near Robertsbridge in East Sussex.
