RAPID CITY, South Dakota — It was all in a deer’s work for South Dakota cop Rich Holt.
The senior officer with the Rapid City Police didn’t just reserve his hero instinct for humans when he went above and beyond to save a deer which had gotten trapped in a fence
“As a police officer you never know what situations the community will call upon you to help with. It isn’t always your responsibility, but when no one else is available, you do what needs to be done,” he said.
The quick-thinking cop pulled a blanket out of his patrol car and tossed it over the struggling fawn’s head to calm it, before pushing it back out the way it came and off to freedom.
