SHOUT OUT: Bergen County Sheriff’s Officer Todd Accomando of Saddle Brook awoke this morning to the sound of banging in his backyard and discovered a five-point buck stuck on a neighbor’s fence.
The buck apparently tried to jump the fence and got caught, suffering a compound fracture, Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
The deer was freed with the help of DPW Supt. Mike Calderone but was unable to walk.
“He tried to get away, but it couldn’t,” Kugler said. “The leg had multiple fractures. He was in an awful and painful position.”
Accomando ( in hooded sweatshirt, above ), who is running for council in Saddle Brook, brought the buck water and petted him while he and his neighbors awaited Bergen County Animal Control. They sedated the buck and took him away.
