What’s That Stuck in This Red Deer’s Antlers? Oh…

Well… that’s not something you see every day!

We get a lot of stories about deer, elk and moose who have found themselves in odd predicaments with their antlers here at Wide Open Spaces. But this is a new one on us. The BBC reports a red deer has been spotted roaming the Scottish Highlands with a bra in his antlers.

The big stag was spotted in Applecross on Scotland’s northwestern coast last week, and resident Megan MacInnes managed to get a photo of the strange sight.

While there’s probably plenty of rut jokes to be made about this, it still makes one wonder, how? The story of how the bra got there isn’t quite as interesting as it might seem at first.

It seems the big stag, which is part of an urban deer herd in the area, just happened to wander into someone’s clothesline at some point and came away with the unusual souvenir in the encounter.

Still, we only wish we could see the confused reaction of the person who finds this stag’s shed antler at some point!
