Victoria police and B.C. conservation officers teamed up for a daring deer rescue over the weekend.
Police were called to the Fairfield neighbourhood Sunday morning for a report of two deer in distress.
Officers found two blacktail bucks entangled in a fishing net and dragging a large piece of driftwood.
A conservation officer arrived and officers sedated the deer.
Police said officers had to remind bystanders to stand back and make room for the officers and animals.
The deer were eventually freed from the net and released back into the wild.
