Spring, Texas:  A positive story coming from the Spring area today after a member of the Family Life Christian Center freed a deer stuck in a wrought iron fence.  Marcus Gilder, a member of the church drove to the nearest fire station and asked firefighter for help.  The Spring Fire Department quickly responded to assist in removing the animal.  Marcus tells Spring Happenings that responders stretched the bars to release some pressure and then used rescue cutters to remove 2 fence bars that were preventing the deer from getting out.

“Once the bars were removed the deer didnt panic but casually stood up and ran into a wooded area”, said Marcus.  “She didnt struggle, like she knew we were there to help.”

The deer suffered minor injuries – no blood or puncture wounds however a large portion of her skin was rubbed raw as she was struggling to free herself from the fence.
