A Seattle homeowner confronted a burglar in an alley after he saw the man run out of an unattached garage with several items. According to this story in The Spokesman-Review, a fight ensued and the homeowner was stabbed in the forehead with an antler before police arrived to take the suspect into custody.

Police could not say whether the antler was among the items taken from the garage. That brings up two possibilities: either the man went into the garage and stole an antler or he was carrying an antler with him to use as a weapon.

You have not heard the news media call out for antler control yet, but when you do, remember you read about it here first.
