Ever Seen a Deer Eat a Bird on Camera?

This deer is a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

Here’s something we never thought we’d see: deer going carnivore! Perhaps after years of watching wolves, foxes, coyote, and bobcats get the better end of the food chain deal, this deer got fed up and tried branching out to new dietary pastures.

Whatever the cause for this deer to suddenly decide to eat a bird, we’re lucky it was caught on video by YouTube user Linda Ford for all the world to see. From her video description:

This buck doesn’t know he is supposed to be a vegetarian! Birds were flying in and running into the head of this young buck in our front yard. I was watching through the window, and I didn’t know why the birds were attacking him. Then, I saw the little bird on the ground.

The other birds had only been trying to distract the deer. I decided not to exchange the audio with music because when I played the video back, I realized my overly dramatic reaction was funny. Yes, I know I have a country accent.

Can you believe your eyes? We barely can, and can’t imagine what’s going through the deer’s little mind. Probably too lazy to just stop chewing. Like we said before, whatever the reason this happened, good thing it was caught on video.
