COLWOOD, B.C. - A British Columbia Mountie who usually handles dogs, found himself wrangling a deer this week.

RCMP in the West Shore detachment on southern Vancouver Island received a call from a Colwood resident on Wednesday saying a buck had been trapped in some netting around a shrub.

When the officer arrived he found the buck exhausted from the struggle to get free.
