Oh and leash your ****ing dog next time. :burn:
+1 mines always on a leash, you just never know what could happen.
Did you even watch the video?
Sucks to be the dog but screw going over there and trying to hit the deer with anything just to get the same beat down the dog got. Deer get hit by cars and pop up and run. If i didnt have my gun Im not messing with it. Deer foot to the face would look bad on youtube.
From the vid.
A newborn fawn creates a dangerous situation when mom gets protective. Starts cute, ends scary.
I cut the footage because I ended up filming the dog's owner, whose privacy had to be protected. (How or why I filmed her, I can't say. I was too shocked to think, it's not like I expected any of this to happen.)
The dog eventually left limping—since posting here we have been able to contact the lady. THE DOG IS OKAY, but traumatized.
River, my deer-whispering cat, is fine—we'll see if he learned his lesson.
We did call animal control, there was "nothing they could do" to prevent further trouble.
Yes, my being there filming contributed to the problem, stressing the doe. And yes, I feel bad about it.
I didn't post this so it could go viral and I could receive comments from all over (some of those were great, thank you), I posted it so people in this area can measure the importance of the problem and maybe come up with ways to avoid similar or worse incidents.
Should I have stopped filming and helped the dog? Frankly, this turned ugly so fast I had no time to think, I had no clue what I could do, other than show how swiftly these innocuous looking animals can become dangerous.
Had I intervened, by the time I'd found some broomstick, the dog might have been spared three seconds of this ordeal, but I wouldn't have this footage to share and get people thinking about how urgent it has become to find ways to address the situation. Hearing about the event wouldn't have the same impact, would it?
This is not about an individual deer, we have hundreds roaming around. To the gun lovers out there: I know zip about hunting, yet I'm positive that opening fire two blocks from an elementary school would have been frowned upon. When I advocate for government intervention, I suggest the job would require professionals or even amateurs who would avoid killing animals indiscriminately. And I don't even know that the solution would be to slaughter these animals. (In Churchill, Manitoba, they relocate the polar bears who come to town. Granted, those are endangered.)
So, no, I'm not sorry for filming and posting this scene. This is not about spreading some sick, voyeuristic fun.
My children live here. Kids walk to school every day. I'd feel a lot better if I knew none of them would ever think to pet a fawn. I may not have helped this poor dog, I sure believe I might still get to help others.
I would have ran and drop kicked that mother****er
And your ass would have got trampled just like that dog did lmfao...
LOL at the fact that a member here actually filmed it. I saw this posted on a local hunting board before SVTP! hahahaha
Poor dog.. I would have ran over and helped that poor little guy out.. And prob. shot the deer since he was going ape shit on the dog.
Hey 90gold, reading comprehension much? Fail. :read:
+1 That was hard to watch.
That being said...I definitely LOLed very, very hard when I saw this.
Yeah I guess I missed that top sentence LOL. Few drinks can do that to you. haha
It's all good Bro.....:beer:
I did see it posted there too though!
should have told it to stop in deer language.
That deer would have f***** you all.
A deer is an animal and like many other animals, will protect its young if they feel they are threatened.
That being said..running up to a deer is probably going to be a bad idea.. it'll kick a hole in you just like it did that dog.. however...get something solid..a baseball bat perhaps..
Or a tranq gun and a nice knife..it goes down..cut its throat, and you got deer burgers in a few hours.
Or tranquilize it, and relocate the animal...where it'll be too stupid to adapt to its new surroundings, and will starve to death.
funny...well sorta. sucked for the dogs behalf but the cat taking a swing at it before bailing out was priceless i thought.
great ****ing comments in here i am balling hahaha. especially the earlier ones. I kinda fought a deer when I ran into one jogging at night, its a little awkward trust me lol but yea I wouldve taken it down if that was my dog
