When these hunters came across a buck entangled with its dead opponent, they set to work unlocking the two while coyotes crept in the background.
In this graphic video, hunters come across a pack of wolves feasting on a dead buck in the field. The problem? A living buck was entangled with its sparring mate.
The hunters captured their rescue on video, and in the process, show us the right way to step in.
Stepping into a situation where a live animal is stressed and struggling is something that should never be taken lightly, but these hunters approach in the right way.
They slowly go up to the deer and take a firm grip on the antlers of the struggling deer so that it is slightly subdued. By speaking in slow, soft voices, they are able to convey that they aren’t a threat at all.
This gives them the time to unlock the deer from its opponent. Be sure to remember these tips if you ever come across this situation in the field!
