Deer rescued from tangle with goal net in Lochinver
A red deer stag had to be rescued after getting its antlers tangled up in a goal net in Lochinver in the Highlands.
Assynt Foundation manager Gordon Robertson and gamekeeper Stuart Belshaw managed to free the animal from the net at a pitch in the Sutherland village.
It was not the first Highlands stag to get its antlers caught in something it should not have.
The stag, one of several that graze around houses in the village, snagged the item of underwear while passing a washing line.
