Is this buck sneezing or choking on something just before it apparently falls over dead?
In the annals of outdoor trail cameras and sportsmen videos, this one may be one of the weirdest.
A cell phone video taken of another video on someone’s laptop computer seems to show a buck in the throes of something that’s quite bizarre.
Did this buck just pass out, choke, or drop dead of something more sinister?
One thing is for sure: that whitetail dropped and didn’t move again that you can see in that clip.
The old adage “If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, did it make any noise,” comes to mind. Wild animals are born, live their lives, die in the woods every day, and we don’t always see it.
Maybe this deer had a heart attack and just died on camera, or maybe it was choking on something that it couldn’t swallow. The video is too grainy and far away to tell if the buck was suffering from some kind of wound.
What do you think, did that deer die of a “sneezing heart attack” or was it something else?
