Oh deer.

This little guy got himself into one big mess.

Oklahoma Game Wardens shared a photo on their Facebook page this week of a young button buck tangled up in a soccer net.

A motorist spotted the deer and called the wardens for help.

To the rescue came warden Cody Youngblood of Adair County.

“Other than being tired from fighting the net, the deer was freed unharmed,” the wardens posted to their Facebook page.

“Who knew deer enjoyed playing soccer?”

Observed one commenter: “I guess they wouldn’t let him play any reindeer games. Good job wardens.”
