arrrgggh it looks like the link won’t work but go to youtube and goggle deer attacking dog.
made me sick watching that.
why the frick wouldnt that person put donw camera and go to the aid of the dog…
Yeah… I saw that on entensity.net and I was thinking the same thing!! If that was my dog I wouldn’t be holding a camera and screaming for the deer to stop, I would take action! But I do wonder what ended up happening because they did cut out what happened next.
All in all it’s a reminder, don’t mess with Bambi’s Mom!
This has happened to my dog whilst we were walking near the public works yard by Wantage Road. She ran into some high grass and several seconds later I heard a yelp, and she came out of the grass on her belly with a deer pummeling her with its hooves. I was surprised to be witnessing such a thing and it took me a few seconds to react but with the help of my other dog I was able to chase the deer off. My female dog was fine and not hurt. After putting my dogs back in the truck I saw the deer return to the grass and then leave the area with her young one in tow. I did not know how aggressive these deer can be untill I had this experience, but it was understandable as the deer was protecting her young.
I see kids tormenting deers all the time, maybe they will get what they deserve
You stand by while the kids torment the deer? Nice.
More people are injured or killed by deer than any other animal in North America acording to stats. They are very pretty but they are a wild animal. Don■t feed them and leave them alone.
That’s collisions with vehicles douche bag, if you ran into a wall and died…did the wall kill you?
Well, you are the brick…
apparently the dog is famous, he was on the news just a day or so ago and it was reported that he was banged up but recovering nicely. He was an innocent victim and didn’t know what came at him as he is a old dog, partially deaf and blind and arthritic. I keep seeing deer in my walk with my dog and i am more cautious now.
Because this might happen:
It might but it shouldn’t even be a consideration.
In fairness though, if you pause at 02 and again at 42 seconds the camo-clad guy is evidently armed with a bow and arrows … which he threw down … the deer acted in self-defence.
sorry for the length of this but it is funny…
Actual Letter from someone who writes, and farms…
I had this idea that I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it.
The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that, since they congregate at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me when we are there (a bold one will sometimes come right up and sniff at the bags of feed while I am in the back of the truck not 4 feet away), it should not be difficult to rope one, get up to it and toss a bag over its head (to calm it down) then hog tie it and transport it home.
I filled the cattle feeder then hid down at the end with my rope.
The cattle, having seen the ropi ng thing before, stayed well back. They were not having any of it.
After about 20 minutes, my deer showed up – 3 of them. I picked out a likely looking one, stepped out from the end of the feeder, and threw my rope. The deer just stood there and stared at me.
I wrapped the rope around my waist and twisted the end so I would have a good hold. The deer still just stood and stared at me, but you could tell it was mildly concerned about the whole rope situation.
I took a step towards it…it took a step away. I put a little tension on the rope and then received an education.
The first thing that I learned is that, while a deer may just stand there looking at you funny while you rope it, they are spurred to action when you start pulling on that rope.
That deer EXPLODED .
The second thing I learned is that pound for pound, a deer is a LOT stronger than a cow or a colt. A cow or a colt in that weight range I could fight down with a rope and with some dignity.
A deer-- no chance.
That thing ran and bucked and twisted and pulled. There was no controlling it and certainly no getting close to it. As it jerked me off my feet and started dragging me across the ground, it occurred to me that having a deer on a rope was not nearly as good an idea as I had originally imagined.
The only upside is that they do not have as much stamina as many other animals.
A brief 10 minutes later, it was tired and not nearly as quick to jerk me off my feet and drag me when I managed to get up. It took me a few minutes to realize this, since I was mostly blinded b y the blood flowing out of the big gash in my head… At that point, I had lost my taste for corn-fed venison. I just wanted to get that devil creature off the end of that rope.
I figured if I just let it go with the rope hanging around its neck, it would likely die slow and painfully somewhere.
At the time, there was no love at all between me and that deer. At that moment, I hated the thing, and I would venture a guess that the feeling was mutual…
Despite the gash in my head and the several large knots where I had cleverly arrested the deer’s momentum by bracing my head against various large rocks as it dragged me across the ground, I could still think clearly enough to recognize that there was a small chance that I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in, so I didn’t want the deer to have it suffer a slow death, so I managed to get it lined back up in between m y truck and the feeder - a little trap I had set before hand…kind of like a squeeze chute.
I got it to back in there and I started moving up so I could get my rope back.
Did you know that deer bite? They do! I never in a million years would have thought that a deer would bite somebody, so I was very surprised when I reached up there to grab that rope and the deer grabbed hold of my wrist.
Now, when a deer bites you, it is not like being bit by a horse where they just bite you and then let go. A deer bites you and shakes its head --almost like a pit bull. They bite HARD and it hurts.
The proper thing to do when a deer bites you is probably to freeze and draw back slowly. I tried screaming and shaking instead. My method was ineffective…
It seems like the deer was biting and shaking for several minutes, but it was likely only several seconds.
I, being smarter than a deer (though you may be questioning that claim by now) tricked it. While I kept it busy tearing the bejesus out of my right arm, I reached up with my left hand and pulled that rope loose. That was when I got my final lesson in deer behaviour for the day.
Deer will strike at you with their front feet. They rear right up on their back feet and strike right about head and shoulder level, and their hooves are surprisingly sharp.
I learned a long time ago that, when an animal – like a horse --strikes at you with their hooves and you can’t get away easily, the best thing to do is try to make a loud noise and make an aggressive move towards the animal. This will usually cause them to back down a bit so you can escape.
This was not a horse. This was a deer, so obviously, such trickery would not work. In the course of a millisecond, I devised a different strategy. I screamed like a woman and tried to turn and run. The reason I had always been told NOT to try to turn and run from a horse that paws at you is that there is a good chance that it will hit you in the back of the head. Deer may not be so different from horses after all, besides being twice as strong and 3 times as evil, because the second I turned to run, it hit me right in the back of the head and knocked me down.
Now, when a deer paws at you and knocks you down, it does not immediately leave. I suspect it does not recognize that the danger has passed. What they do instead is paw your back and jump up and down on you while you are laying there crying like a little girl and covering your head.
I finally man aged to crawl under the truck and the deer went away.
So now I know why when people go deer hunting they bring a rifle with a scope so that they can be somewhat equal to the Prey.
But what if it follows you and wants to be your friend?
Maybe he just wants to guard your greenhouse
