Police may expect the occasional call out over a trapped animal, but these officers in the US state of Missouri had to think on their feet after a deer became entangled in a hammock.

Bodycam footage posted on the Chesterfield Police Department Facebook page showed how the responding officers tackled the problem after the animal’s antlers became hooked into the backyard netting.

The deer was eventually cut free, but the hammock inevitably had to be sacrificed.
