When a Springs woman saw a pregnant deer in distress, her first instinct was to help.
The deer was wrapped in wiring from a tomato cage in Nikole Jordan's yard near 8th Street. Jordan spotted the deer and immediately called Colorado Parks and Wildlife for help. Wildlife officials told Jordan the animal may have not survived if Nikole Jordan hadn't stepped in.
"He said if it would've gotten around the torso she would've suffocated and that babies would've also suffocated...so we got him just in time," Jordan said.
The family says the response from wildlife officers also deserves recognition.
Here in Colorado its pretty common to spot deer, and other animals in your neighborhood. For more information about living with wildlife, you can visit the Colorado Parks And Wildlife website.
