Parks officers stun fawn with stun gun to free it from wire tangled around its neck

DENVER — Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers in the southeast region said they used a stun gun to help rescue a fawn that had wire tangled around its neck.

The frisky fawn was frantic and tried to run from its rescuers, so they fired the stun gun to “temporarily immobilize it.”

After deploying the stun gun, an officer held the fawn’s legs while another cut the wire tangled around its neck.

The fawn seemed to shake off the shock just fine.

“Watch it run off at full speed,” CPW officials tweeted.
