One morning in early November, Mark Brye looked out from his rural home and noticed the elk sculpture that decorates his lawn was lying on its side. Laying 20 feet away was a very dead whitetail buck. Apparently the buck had wandered into the Brye yard during the night, spotted the "bull", and mistook it for another rutting whitetail. The buck paid dearly for his courageous challenge, as the statue--which weighs 640 pounds--fell on the buck as he sparred with it. After getting body-slammed, the buck staggered off a few yards and died.
