March 29 (UPI) -- Animal rescuers in England rescued a deer that became entangled in an unattended soccer net.

The RSPCA said rescuers responded to Cheltenham on a report of a deer in distress, and they arrived to find the muntjac deer's entire body entangled in a soccer net.

The organization said the deer was safely removed from the net "with only superficial injuries."

The RSPCA said the incident should serve as a reminder "to put away nets when not in use."
