BEND, Ore. (AP) - A mule deer wandering around Eagle Crest survived a close call when a resident spotted an arrow sprouting from its side.

The Bulletin of Bend reports (http://is.gd/hUwIc1 ) that Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists and Oregon State Police troopers responded this week after an Eagle Crest resident reported the buck’s injury.

Fish and Wildlife officials say biologists hit the deer with a tranquilizer dart and then performed surgery to remove the arrow in a garage.

They released the deer in the same neighborhood where it was found.

Anyone with information about who wounded the buck is asked to call Oregon State Police’s “Turn in Poachers” tip line.
