In a mountain resort in Italy, a deer was stuck among racks of clothes. In western Germany, a deer was trapped in an empty swimming pool. Both animals were freed.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Across Europe this week, lost deer are making headlines. In a mountain resort in Italy, a deer went shopping - maybe? It was stuck, at least, among racks of clothing for hours. Authorities blocked off a street to catch and release the animal. Then in western Germany, a deer turned up in an empty swimming pool. Firefighters enlisted a local hunter to jump in and push it to safety. And they said the deer, quote, "didn't even thank anyone for its rescue."
