We see this in urban/suburban areas every rut: A buck chasing a doe doesn’t quite make it over an ornamental steel fence, becomes impaled and dies. Very sad, what a shame. This occurred recently in Terre Haute. This is a giant, look at that rack and especially those brows.

Last year, I found a dead doe stuck hanging from a similar fence (darn spikes at the top instead of a flat rail) near my home. I called the local police dept. to ask that they get her off of the fence and they said it’s the Conservation Dept’s responsibility. I called the Conservation Dept and they said it’s not their responsibility. Between the two depts., she soon got taken off the fence. People don’t think about those darn spike rails at the top of fences and the deer jumping over them. I guess the folks think the spikes are neat looking and will keep bad guys out. Yeah, right.
Yea…sickening. I agree with you David. Someone knows about him and prob has been hunting him. See that all the time…here it’s usually a car on the highway or a train.
Bad way to go. Every time I see something like this where a deer dies from a strange cause, I wonder what hunter nearby had been chasing this giant. Somewhere somebody has been chasing this guy and probably has pictures of him.
Always a shame to see that. You’d think that big boy could clear that fence (even with the impaler tips) with no problems. Maybe traffic got him nervous and he short hopped it? Hard to say for sure.
