We’ve all seen animal remains at some point, but I’m willing to guess most of us haven’t seen anything quite like this before.
A hunter was walking through the woods when he spotted a deer skeleton seemingly propped up against a tree.
Upon closer inspection, the man discovered that one side of the buck’s antlers had become stuck between two small trees. And he was REALLY stuck. When the cameraman pans around to the opposite side of the tree, you can clearly see that the antler is wrapped tightly around the trunk.
Check it out:
I honestly have no idea how he got stuck. It doesn’t look like the right time of year for sparring, and I don’t know if a buck could get into the much trouble attempting to make a rub.
One thing’s for certain…the coyotes didn’t miss their chance.
What a terrible way to go—devoured by coyotes, who, by the way, almost always start from the butt. Meaning this buck was probably alive while he was being eaten.
And it must have happened fairly recently…the head has barely started to decompose.
Just a shame all around. This buck would’ve looked much better on some hunter’s wall.
