'Oh deer what a day': Platteville police help young fawn escape fenced in area

PLATTEVILLE, Wis. - The Platteville Police Department said, "oh deer what a day" after rescuing a fawn that was trapped in a fenced-in area. 

The department posted about the deer on its Facebook page Tuesday. The fawn couldn't find its way out of a fenced area so a Platteville officer created an opening for it.

The deer then ran into Main Street and tried to hide under a car. Officials said the deer was still partially in the lane of traffic and would likely be hit by a car. The officer then picked up the deer and carried him to his squad car. 

Officials said the little buck was released unharmed in a safe area of the city.
