(Scroll down for video) A police officer came to the rescue of a deer that was stuck to a dead deer by shooting it with a Taser, police in Minnesota said.

The South Lake Minnetonka Police Department said that they received a call about two deer fighting around 8:30 a.m. on Sunday.

When police officers arrived at the scene, they noticed that the deer’s antlers were entangled in each other. One deer shook itself violently in an effort to untangle from the animal.

Unfortunately, the other deer was dead. Police believe that the deer were stuck for several hours. After consulting with wildlife experts, the officers decided to use a Taser on the deer that was still alive.

One of the officers at the scene fired his Taser, while the other officers used a chainsaw to quickly cut the deer’s antlers. When the deer became free, it quickly ran away.
