ARDEN, Del. (AP)- A team of rescuers have freed a deer from a well in Delaware.           

News outlets report that a dog found the young buck trapped in a well on Saturday.           

Claymont Fire Capt. Ed Anderson and his crew called in the New Castle County High Angle Response Team, Kent County Large Animal Rescue Team, a veterinarian from the Brandywine Zoo, Delaware Animal Response and tight-space rescue technicians to free the deer from the manmade construct. Other fire crews and animal welfare officers also responded to the scene.           

The rescuers tranquilized the deer with a dart, and had him out within 11 minutes. The zoo vet cleared the deer before rescuers left the buck in the woods to recover on his own.
