A buck in British Columbia named "Hammy" for the purple hammock stuck in his antlers now has a clean rack!
Back in August 2017, Marcedés Mack was back in Prince Rupert visiting family when it all started.
After a call to the local Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Hammy was free and on his way...except for a clump of purple fabric left behind on his antlers. Once folks in the area knew what to look for, Hammy become something of a celebrity.
Once hundreds of photos of the now-famous buck circled the internet, the legend of Hammy thrived and folks made the most of it!
At this time, authorities have captured Hammy and removed his famous locks.
Conservation officers have set the whitetail free, and the only thing remaining is some purple coloring in his rack. When his antlers fall off this winter, Hammy will lose his fame and fortune, but his legend will live on!
