SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio — A police officer fell victim to an “occupational hazard” moments before a rescue.

According to the South Euclid Police Department Facebook page, Lt. James Wilson attempted to dislodge a fawn from a fence along Langerdale Road.

During the effort, he took a stray hoof right to the face.  It left a visible injury on the side of his mouth.

The fawn was freed a few minutes later.

Wilson took the kick in stride, smiled for a picture and called it “just an occupational hazard.”
