ENCINO (CBSLA.com) — A little deer got into big trouble Saturday when he went for a dip in an Encino swimming pool.
The deer jumped the 7-foot fence and then got caught in the pool cover and flailed around a bit.
The homeowner and two neighbors were able to pull the cover off but the deer had a tough time getting out of the pool.
After several attempts the deer was about to wiggle his way free.
Animal Control officers caught up with the little buck and tranquilized him.
They told the homeowner they would give the deer a thorough check-up and then take him back into the wild.
Neighbors nicknamed the deer “King.”
