SPOKANE, Wash. -

After being stuck in frigid waters for nearly an hour, a buck deer – antlers and all – is free once again to roam the area around Riverside State Park west of Spokane.

Nick Knapp, a worker at Spokane’s Riverside Park Water Reclamation plant, took pictures of the buck deer he found in one of the city’s wastewater tanks on Nov. 20. Obviously stuck with no way out, Knapp put a rope around the animal’s antlers, pulled him to the side and lifted it to safety with a loader.

The animal walked away “looking kind of rough” but alive nonetheless.

“So if you’re by Riverside State Park look for a deer with about 12 feet of rope connected to his antlers,” wrote Knapp on Facebook, and “oh yeah, I got my deer [on Saturday].”
