Deer Mistaken for Dead Jumps Out of Car Trunk
Michigan officers were on patrol Tuesday night when they got a big surprise. According to nbcnews.com, they were checking on parking lots when they confronted a suspicious man sitting in a car. The man told one of the officers, I hit a deer. I figured you'd want to see it."
After striking the deer with his car, the man loaded it up in his car's trunk with the intention of feeding the meat to his family. The officers wanted to check the deer to make sure it was properly tagged, but when the man hit the trunk release, the deer hopped out of the trunk hind legs first startling both of the officers. The deer stumbled, then righted itself and ran into the woods.
This crazy scene was captured on the officers' dashboard camera.
This video reminds me of a blog I wrote several months ago about a buck that regained consciousness in the back of an SUV after being illegally shot by the two men driving the SUV. The men then stabbed the deer to death while it was still in the back of the vehicle. Cops pulled over the men because their SUV was actually dripping blood.
So, have you ever tried to recover a shot or road-killed deer only to discover it was still alive?
