Trooper Gets Selfie With Deer

Posted: Updated:

FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) -- A State Trooper in Pikeville got an unexpected surprise when he went on a report to a deer running wild in a park.

The call came into Post 9's dispatch Wednesday morning. Visitors to Minnie Ball Park were reporting that a wild deer was running free and needed to be returned to the woods.

Officer Blake Frasure responded to the call and noticed that children were petting the friendly animal. An avid outdoorsman, he couldn't resist taking a selfie with the deer.

He then helped the animal find its way back into the woods safely.
