Drivers in Louisville, Kentucky, had to watch out for more than just other cars during a morning commute in early November. They had a rogue deer to contend with as well.
Yes, the deer headed downtown because of the rut.
“Their brains are a little bit fried this time of year,” says Kentucky Fish and Wildlife spokesman Mark Marraccini. “It’s unusual any time of the year except for now. We’re entering into the rut which is the breeding season for whitetail deer. Deer movement this time of year causes people to see them more and more.”
As you can see in the video, the rogue deer is a nice little six-point buck.
But maybe that deer’s smarter than we think. It is deer season in Kentucky, and gun season is just about to start.
Maybe that rogue deer thought it would be easier to dodge cars than arrows and bullets.
