ODFW Rescues Three Legged Deer From Christmas Lights

(Dallas, OR) -- A local three-legged deer nicknamed "Tripod" in Dallas is doing fine after getting tangled in some Christmas lights. Oregon Fish and Wildlife says crews rescued the animal on Monday after residents reported there were lights wrapped around the deer's antlers. Fish and Wildlife agents used a tranquilizer dart to immobilize the buck and remove the lights. The deer lost its right front leg in an accident, and the injury has healed. Fish and Wildlife agents say it seems to be getting around fine.
