Inovative Deer Wrangling Techniques

This really happened, and it happened by accident. Really.

Here's the series of events, as best as we can piece them together, that led to what you're seeing in these mysterious pictures:
  1. A semi-anonymous Meadow Vista resident disconnected one end of a dog-run and coiled the cable next to a tree in a flower garden in his side yard.
  2. A few years later, a hungry and distracted buck decided to eat some plants from the flower bed.
  3. When the full and satisfied deer started to leave for another neighbors garden, he notices a tugging on his antlers.
  4. Soon, the human heard the struggling and noticed that one end of his dog-run was still attached to the tree, but the other end of the cable was tangled in the rack of a humongous buck's antlers!
  5. The human called his neighbor and said, "I think we're going to need a bigger boat... load of courage and ingenuity to untangle this buck."
Stay tuned for part six of this story...

I came home from work one day to find a fawn that had attempted to jump over the neighbor's barbed wire fence. The back hoof didn't make it over, and slipped between the top and next to the top wires. As the deer came down, the leg acted as a lever and brought the next to top wire up while twisting against the top wire. The fawn was now hopelessly caught. I heard a strange "barking" noise and found the fawn caught this way. As I approached, the agitated the mother quite a bit. She began running in circles (35' Radius, jumping the fence about once every few seconds) around me as I attempted to free the fawn. Got it set free, it limped off, and the mother quit doing circles.
