Firefighters rescue trapped fawn off Longview Drive in Pleasanton

Deer trapped in fence for four hours

Firefighters in Pleasanton on Friday were able to help release a fawn that had gotten trapped in an iron fence in the upper Longview community west of Foothill Road.

Firefighters with the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department took on the challenge at a home on Twelve Oaks Drive on a report the fawn had been trapped in the fence for at least four hours.

Firefighters and Pleasanton police officers used air bags primarily used for heavy lifting during rescue operations to spread the fence bars far enough apart to free the fawn.

After about five minutes, crews were able to free the fawn. The animal ran off after being freed.

Witnesses reported the fawn's mother was seen earlier standing by the trapped fawn.
