(AP) — A fawn trying to make a clean getaway after it got caught in some fencing instead wound up in the bathtub of a Colorado home.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, which posted a photo of the wayward fawn in a tub online Wednesday, says a man freed the animal from some fencing outside his home in Evergreen Tuesday night. Instead of returning to nature, it ran through an open door in his house and into the bathroom. He told deputies that he put it in the tub before calling for help.

The sheriff's office says deputies put the fawn in a blanket, carried it outside and set it free away from the fences. Its mom couldn't be seen but deputies hope they were able to reunite.
