The department released video of an officer arriving and cutting the net as the fawn whines.  

"Almost there buddy," the officer said before the fawn ran off. 

"Officers responded to handle the situation as we do many times each day and night (although most don't involve a cute spotted Bambi)," the department posted on its Facebook page. 'Another good job."
