Watch: Doing the Right Thing

Hunters help save a rutting buck that just won’t give up on crossing a barbed-wire fence.


 

Every year, hunters seem to find bucks in ever-increasingly difficult predicaments. There was the deer stuck between two hay bales; the buck who caught his antlers in a tree swing. But of all the unusual ways deer seem to get themselves stuck during the rut each year, none of them seem so set on getting right back into the same situation as this one.

This buck got his antlers twisted in barbed wire as it tried to cross a fence and get to a receptive doe. It had no more been released than it became confused and slammed right back into the fence.

Thankfully the deer recovered soon after, heading off in a safer direction.
