Idaho Humane Society saved a fawn that was caught in a fence and hanging upside down Thursday.

The young deer was found tangled in a fence and hanging upside down near State Street and Hawthorn off Collister road. The Animal Care and Control team arrived and called Idaho Fish and Game to free the fawn.

Once the fawn was freed from the fence, the team brought it in for an examination.

Director of Shelter Medicine Dr. Alix McGrath examined the fawn and found only lacerations but no fractures.
