Video: Buck in a Swingset
By Scott Bestul
You all saw the fascinating slideshow of pictures from Terry and Sherry Bolding, the couple who sent us photos of themselves freeing a buck locked by the antlers to its dead sparring partner. The video that below shows a different kind of entanglement. Apparently a whitetail buck wandering through someone's backyard got its antlers wrapped up in a child's swingset.
I sure hope the person who filmed the situation was as kind to this buck as the Boldings were to the one they encountered. Not sure I'd have waited to get it on camera before figuring out a way to help the animal. Since this is all the footage we could find, at this point we don't know how this ended. If anyone has more info, post it below.
