We Appreciate This Calm, Controlled Rescue of a Frantic Buck Trapped in Wire Mesh

Watch as a man cuts a deer free after its antler gets wrapped up in wire fencing.

Deer, specifically bucks, have a bad habit of getting stuck in things, whether it’s two bucks getting their antlers locked together in a fight or just one tangled up in some wire fencing.

This unfortunate deer found himself in a very peculiar situation when one of its antlers became severely entangled in some wire mesh fencing that was wrapped around a tree. Lucky for him, this man happened to have a pair of wire cutters in his truck.

I guess when you can’t exactly see that big rack sitting on top of your head, it’s hard to tell if it’s tangled into stuff until it’s too late. Then they tend to only make matters worse by freaking out and trying to pull themselves free often entangling them worse.

Every now and then when they do receive help from a passerby at least some of them seem to understand that they are trying to help and not harm them like this one did. I have seen a lot of videos where someone goes to help free a big buck only to be met with almost deadly resistance.

At least the deer was set free safe and sound, and this guy gets a few plus points to his karma rating in life.
