Officers Sara Hendrickson, Brent Parker and Jim Frost all helped save the life of a deer that had gotten stuck in a soccer net. The call came in a little after 7 a.m. May 18. Hendrickson had just gotten to the office for the day. "I thought, 'Well, I'm gonna grab a scissors.' I don't know why I thought that, but at the time, I did, and I'm glad I had it," she said.One of the officers held the deer in one place while Hendrickson cut the animal loose.
It's a good thing that Decorah police arrived so promptly as it's pretty clear that the deer would have strangled itself if it had been stuck in the net much longer!
