Authorities have rescued a doe that was found trapped in a storm drain in suburban Kansas City.

Police in Olathe said in a Facebook post that someone stumbled across the animal Saturday while walking a dog. The post described the doe as "very agitated and in distress." The department estimated that it had been in the hole for about a week.

A video shows an animal control officer reaching a long pole with a loop on the end into the open manhole and pulling out the doe. After emerging, the doe bounds into a wooded area. The officer then told the county that the manhole needs fixing.
