Not every day do you see a mule deer like this caught on a fence post. Apparently the deer misjudged the height and pinned himself near his hind legs. This picture is at the National Veterens Cemetary in Evansville, Wyoming.
This photo of an albino buck was taken in Wisconsin. The animal was standing calmly in a field watching.
It is rare for albino deer to get very large in the wild as their obviously color makes it difficult for them to blend naturally into their surrounding. Some states even make it illegal to shoot such deer which afford them a little more protection from one less predator. Have you ever seen an albino or piebald deer while hunting?
This is just one more reason we say nature isn't as cute and cuddly as we some times like to pretend. A gorgeous mountain lion is still a predator and hence the part of its name "lion." Here is a game camera photo passed around online that shows a big cat stalking a deer through the trees. Now this picture supposedly was and was not taken in every state in the US and is older than dirt and some say it is photoshopped. Either way it is a sweet picture, so if you haven't seen it before, enjoy. Imagine meeting this guy on the way to your treestand at 6am. Is it a real photo? You be the judge.
Here's something you don't see every day! Deer Fishing anyone? Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel when some you deer came swimming up to his boat.
"Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away that the young bucks were distressed.
I opened up my back gate and we helped the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat. In all my years fishing, I've never seen anything quite like it!
Once onboard, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering."
"This is a picture I took of the rescued bucks on the back of my boat, the Alaska Quest. We headed for Taku Harbour.
Once we reached the dock, the first buck that we had pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say 'thank you' and disappeared into the forest.
After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more help.
Tom used his handy wheel barrow to move the last one off the boat.
My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck to its feet. We didn't know how long they had been in the icy waters or if there had been others who did not survive."
It was definitely na one of a kind and unforgettable experience for the Satre family! (Story details courtesy of http:// penkin.posterous.com)
