KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A whitetail buck deer wandered right into a Northland Home Depot and wiggled his way into a tight spot.

The deer walked into the garden center and somehow managed to work his way behind some breakable pottery. Once he was behind the racks, he just stood there calm as can be.

A veterinarian and conservation agents teamed up to free the deer. They used a tranquilizer to subdue the deer.

Then, they used a flatbed cart to wheel the deer to a conservation agent's truck. They quickly rushed him to a nearby field and released him back into the wild.

Employees and conservation agents are still trying to figure out how he managed to get into such a tight spot.

"There are no pots knocked off the racking. It's a 12-foot tall racking with no sign of disturbance. Somehow he worked his way over, up and in it," conservation agent Aaron Post said. 

The release went as planned, Post said.
