This fallow deer that was barely able to move after getting a mass of rubbish trapped in its antlers has been rescued by staff at the Nidzica Forest in Poland.
The young stag had been spotted at numerous locations by visitors the the area, each time with seemingly more rubbish stuck in it's antlers.
Local forestry spokesman Pawel Kaszuba said: "There was a mass of fibres that had in turn snared a wooden branch that had broken off and been added to the collection, as well as a broken plastic crate.
"The animal could barely lift its head because of the weight but catching it was difficult even though it was exhausted."
Vets eventually managed to sedate the animal and removed the rubbish from the antlers.
Kaszuba added: "After giving him a full check-up, we released him back into the forest. When the stag woke up, he vanished at speed into the trees, something he hadn't been able to do before."
