Deer caught in an electric fence in Macclesfield was freed

A deer caught in an electric fence in Macclesfield was freed in a joint operation between the RSPCA and Cheshire Fire Service.

A member of the public reported the struggling deer to the RSPCA on Friday 1 September after it was spotted in a field in Dry Knowle, Wildboarclough, in Macclesfield.

An inspector from the animal charity saw its antlers had got caught up in electric fencing wire tangled around a tree.

The deer was sedated and the fire crew managed to carefully free the deer from the wire.
