PAROWAN, Utah (ABC4) – A buck had a weight taken off his shoulders – and his head – last week in southern Utah.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says biologists were called to reports of a mule deer buck with a huge mass of string caught in his antlers and obscuring his vision.
After tranquilizing the buck, biologists were able to remove the string – believed to be a hammock – and released the buck with a GPS collar.
Biologists were able to capture the buck on camera after releasing him, saying it “looks like he’s doing great!”
In colorado, a bull elk recently had a tire removed from its neck after it had been there for at least two years.
