Nobody wants to have to put down a deer…
Luckily, this officer didn’t have too! However, the story regarding this pretty crazy video is a little strange. As the report goes, a driver hit a deer with his SUV. Believing the deer was dead, he then decided to load it in the back of his vehicle to take it home. However, once inside the vehicle, the driver then discovered the deer was actually still alive. That’s when the police were called to come put it down.
What you are about to see is directly from the responding officer’s dashcam.
Yeah, that is one lucky deer. We aren’t saying it isn’t worse for the wear, but at least it was able to run away on its four legs! Deer have a way of bouncing back from things like this. At the very least, though, it’s probably going to have a noticeable limp.
There’s no report on what the guy was going to do with the deer after attempting to drive it home.
As it was also reported by the officer, the deer left without giving a statement.
