Antler amputation

When Minnesota, U.S., residents called to report 2 deer whose antlers were tangled in the woods behind their houses, the responding officers were surprised to find that one of the bucks was still alive. Policeman Ricky Syhre commented, "They must have been stuck together like that for hours." He and his colleagues used a Taser to subdue the animal, and an electric saw to quickly cut away its antler (VIDEO HERE). The successful rival walked off and will shed and grow another pair of antlers in time for the next rutting season.
