Antler-locked deer seem to be a seasonal occurrence, but saving them from coyotes is rarely caught on camera like this.
The rut makes bucks a little crazy, and in some cases crazy enough to get their antlers stuck together.
This group of hunters stumbled upon a pair of bucks, one already dead and mangled from the coyotes, and came to the rescue in a harrowing video that shows how stuck two bucks can really get.
From the video description:
Two 4 point bucks get tangled together in a deadly sparring dual to the death. 3 coyotes feasted on the loser while the winner is powerless to get away from the agony of witnessing close up his opponent shredded and eaten alive. Now left in an exhaustive battle for his life the victor’s only way out is the charitable gesture of 4 good Samaritan outdoorsmen who show their love of God’s creation and set the victor free.
