(Scroll down for video) A government employee who spotted a deer in distress, managed to help it by removing a light globe that was stuck on its head, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation said.

On Tuesday around 9:45 a.m., Environmental Conservation Officer (ECO) Jeff Hull received a call reporting that a deer in Centereach, had managed to get its head stuck inside a light globe.

The deer had been standing in one spot in the woods since the previous night. Upon arrival, Hull spotted the deer about 20 yards from the road of a housing development.

Hull approached the deer, but on his first attempt, the wet globe slipped out of his hands and the deer ran into a nearby tree, causing it to fall.

On his second attempt, Hull flung his coat over the globe, bear hugging it with both arms as the deer kicked and struggled to break free.

The deer managed to slip out of the globe and ran off into the woods. Hull was left with a great feeling and a few bruises.
