Default Fawn caught in fence

Today my son-in-law and I went to do our last camera check before the season begins. We had got to one of the spots when we kept hearing this loud bawling sound. My son-in-law made his way to a nearby fence and saw this fawn with it's hind legs stuck in the top strands of the fence. It was bawling really loud. We ended up undoing the top strand of barbed wire and was able to release the fawns legs. It kind of fell to the ground and layed there for about five seconds and then jumped up and ran off as fast as it could. Didn't even stop to say thanks. Here's a pic. Pardon the quality, all I had was my cell phone.

The aftermath
