A female deer has been rescued after it became trapped inside a narrow natural pool in Cañón de las Buitreras gorge near Cortes de la Frontera in the Serranía de Ronda.

Agents from the Andalusian Environment Agency (AMA) and a group of people who were canyoning in the area said if they hadn't spotted the animal, it would have probably died from starvation. "It was probably a case of natural selection, but we could not allow this deer to starve to death in a watering hole in the Buitreras gorge," they said.

In this video released on AMA's X social media profile, you can see the rescue team tying a harness around the deer, and pulling it up over a rock and out of the waterhole.

The agents thanked the outdoor sport members for their help, as without it the rescue would have been a lot more complicated. "Thanks to Clara, Lourdes, Emmanuelle and Juan Manuel who left their activity to help in the rescue," they wrote on X.
