An off-duty police officer rescued a fawn Tuesday morning that was tangled in Christmas lights.

Hudson Police Officer Kevin Sweet was stopping by his mother's house Tuesday morning when he spotted a small fawn wrapped in Christmas lights hiding in the back yard.

"It's ok, little guy," Sweet coaxed. "If you stand still, I can help you."

But the fawn was too frightened to stand still, so Sweet patiently talk to the fawn. He recorded the encounter on his cell phone.

"No, no, no. Good boy," he encouraged the fawn. "It's okay."

Sweet said the fawn tried to run away, but it couldn't because the lights were wrapped around its neck and legs at the same time. Sweet was finally able to get close enough to the grab the plug after a few minutes.

"It's okay," Sweet said. "Easy, easy buddy."

The fawn sat still with nowhere to run until all the lights were cut away.

"It's okay, buddy," Sweet continued. "Can you get up? Come on. Stand up."

The fawn stood up, but didn't run away. Instead, the fawn gave one last look to the man who saved him.

    Very nice to see. People do attach human thoughts to animals,. That deer was in shock and was not going to move. The smart cop make sure it knew it could move, therefore had to encourage it to stand. They can't seem to comprehend what just happened so they just stare. What a fine film to see. Christmas Lights ? Seriously?
