A South Texas Border Patrol agent rescued a young deer stuck in a fence along a ranch in Brooks County. The deer managed to poke its head through the fence before being trapped by its antlers.
A video tweeted by Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol Officer Gloria I. Chavez shows a Falfurrias Station Border Patrol agent responding to a deer caught in a rancher’s fence. The deer can be seen flailing around trying unsuccessfully to escape the clutches of the fence.
Helping people in need knows no borders! Our #Border Patrol Agents will always respond without hesitation! Even if it’s Rudolph in need!

As the officer approaches, the deer stops struggling and allows the officer to work with the fence to secure his release. As the officer struggles to bend the stiff fence wire, the spike breaks free and the young male flies off into the brush.
“Our #Border Patrol Agents will always respond without hesitation! tweeted Chief Chavez. “Even if it’s Rudolph in need!”
Brooks County Border Patrol agents are frequently called upon to rescue stranded migrants at those same ranches where the deer rescue took place. Unfortunately, Brooks County is one of the top counties in Texas for migrant deaths because smugglers force migrants to walk around the Falfurrias Border Patrol checkpoint located on U.S. Route 281 between McAllen and La Corpus Christi area.
