A group of hunters in the US saved a deer that was stuck to another deer that had died after their antlers became interlocked during a fight.
Six men hunting pheasants came across the stricken creature in Harrold, South Dakota and uploaded footage of the rescue on November 10.
Eagles were feeding on the dead deer as the survivor frantically tried to extricate itself.
The men approached the deer cautiously expecting it to "go nuts" when they tried to grab it and untangle it but the animal edged away slowly, weighed down by the limp body of the dead deer.
Two of the men took hold of the deer's antlers and tried to untangle them.
About a minute later they managed to free the animal, which ran off into the distance.
Male deer often interlock their antlers in fights, which can sometimes result in both animals dying of starvation or stress as they struggle desperately to free themselves.
In urban areas deer sometimes get their antlers tangled in wires and fences and have to be freed by locals.
