VIDEO: Wildlife officers rescue fawn stuck in sewer

Two Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers pulled off the rescue Monday in Woodland Park.

WOODLAND PARK, Colo. — It's typical this time of year for officers to rescue young wild animals that have gotten stuck in a storm drain, though they're not usually this big.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) Officers Corey Adler and Jacob Sonberg got a call Monday of a deer fawn stuck in a sewer in Woodland Park, according to CPW.
