CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming wildlife officials had to lend a helping hand to a mule deer that got a tomato cage stuck on its antlers this week.

Police in Cody were notified Tuesday about the deer with the encumbered antlers and Wyoming Game & Fish responded.

Wildlife damage technician Sam Stephens and large carnivore biologist Luke Ellsbury tranquilized the yearling buck.

Agency spokeswoman Tara Hodges tells the Cody Enterprise (https://bit.ly/1wbDwuk ) that Stephens and Ellsbury used wire cutters to remove the cage.

Hodges says the deer was placed under a tree, where it recovered from the tranquilizer and wandered off.
