Oh deer! Firefighters in California had to rescue a deer from a canal.

Crews responded and determined the animal was unable to climb the steep walls of the canal. Firefighters say it took about ten minutes to haul the deer out of the water.
Firefighters said it took about 10 minutes to haul the deer out of the water.
