When This Man Saw A Deer Fighting For Its Life, He Acted Quickly And Saved The Day

This takes some serious guts.

If you saw a thrashing, kicking, squirming deer running around in your yard, what would you do? Chances are you wouldn't approach it, hold it down and help it out.

But that's exactly what John McLain did. The Idaho man saw a deer wrapped in bailing wire and decided he couldn't sit back and ignore it. 

"Video of me freeing a deer from a ball of bailing twine," he says in the video description. "Not my safest decision, but it worked out."

McLain, who couldn't be reached for comment, said he used a knife to cut the wire free while holding the deer with his other hand. The whole thing takes about two minutes.
