    A deer stuck in a soccer net was saved by a deputy.

    A deer in the Florida Keys is breathing more easily after a deputy helped untangle him from a soccer net.

    Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy Danielle Malone found the young Key deer buck Saturday morning with his head and antlers caught in a soccer net at a church on Big Pine Key. She was able to free him safely and he ran off, uninjured.

    Key deer are the smallest of the Virginia white-tailed deer subspecies and are endangered. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services says the deer have been threatened by development, habitat loss and hurricanes.
