Oh Deer!

"It is better to have loved and lost..." ...well, maybe not. At least not for the 180 pound buck Mark Brye of Viroqua, Wisconsin found lying dead on his lawn in early November. In the deer breeding season bucks will defend their territory by fighting other bucks who enter it. These fights can be quite violent and sometimes deadly. Apparently the buck decided that the 640 pound cement elk lawn ornament in Mark's yard was trespassing on his turf and went to battle. This was obvious due to the heavy statue being knocked over as well as the deer having a shattered skull. He fought the elk and the elk won. Now the buck is in Mark's freezer and Mark is thinking of replacing the elk's broken antlers with the buck's 7 point rack. That's if Mark can get a few guys together to set the lawn statue upright.

ouch! that must have been a killer headache. next animal activists will be lobbying to make these kind of lawn ornaments illegal because they endanger the male deer.

come on wayne, you have to admit, males of any species can get pretty stupid when it comes to mating and competition in their territory. 😉

true, but how many times do you see a drunk guy outside a bar trying to fight a guy twice his size because the big dude hit on his girl? kinda the same thing. :lol:
