6/1/2006: Dead stuck buck



xoB sends along this gruesome set, with the comment: apparently this buck got stuck in the tree rubbing the velvet off his antlers or at least practicing for the rut.



And, I suppose, it's a lesson for all of us bucks. Oh sure, the rut sounds fun, go out on some weekend all preened, horns up high, looking to get laid. You could wind up like this guy, all snorting and angry and pissed off and only getting yourself stuck far worse.



Yes, sometimes when you hear the call of nature you should just leave it alone.



glatt  Thursday Jun 1 12:56 PM

Poor stupid animal. A human would never put their head somewhere that it might get stuck.



rkzenrage  Thursday Jun 1 01:00 PM

We used to see this a lot on the ranch I worked on. Mostly on fences, but occasionally in the scrub. Very sad.



wolf  Thursday Jun 1 01:00 PM

Yes, but because our friends have opposable thumbs and an understanding of cooperation rather than only competition, male humans can be saved from themselves. Sometimes.



Spexxvet  Thursday Jun 1 01:57 PM

And my penis isn't as long as his antlers.



John  Thursday Jun 1 01:59 PM

Buck, stuck? Fuck!



Saknussem  Thursday Jun 1 02:08 PM

Simply a case of survival of the fittest, and this was too tight a fit.



milkfish  Thursday Jun 1 05:33 PM

Nah, that wily old tree was waiting for an opportunity, and jumped up and grabbed him. Tasty nitrogen fertilizer, y'know.

In the first picture, that buck's face looks simply mortified to be caught dead in this predicament.



Happy Monkey  Thursday Jun 1 05:43 PM

It looks to me like some predators may have run off with most of that tree's nitrogen.



LabRat  Thursday Jun 1 05:58 PM

Well, if no one else will say it... Yes, too bad for the poor guy, but that rack would really look good on the wall.

probably birds. like prometheus.....except once only. that would really really suck to be stuck if you were a buck, i mean fuck, the rotten luck. it's odd that his antlers didn't break. I wonder if he died before or during his consumption?

what a way to go


Leah  Thursday Jun 1 06:14 PM

Wow look at that pissed off look on his face. He's pissed.
(on leave tomorrow for 3 weeks, going to Thailand to play with the elephants )



Wombat  Thursday Jun 1 07:07 PM

What's really sad is that you can tell from all the scratched bark that he struggled for a long time.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jun 1 07:17 PM

Bye bye, Leah...take pictures for us.

I imagine that buck got exhausted and dehydrated pretty fast. He'd break his neck before he'd break those antlers.



kgg  Thursday Jun 1 07:55 PM

dang. Porr guy. That really sucks! His buddies probably walked by laughin'. Whoa dude, get yourself outta that one.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jun 1 10:12 PM

Actually, they kissed him on the cheek and said, well, I guess it's just not your day sweety.



skysidhe  Thursday Jun 1 11:00 PM



That's so sad! I hope he didn't suffer too much.



Leah  Thursday Jun 1 11:09 PM

By the looks of the marks on the tree, I think he suffered horribly.

Yeah


Aliantha  Thursday Jun 1 11:46 PM

Nature can be brutal, but not half as brutal as human beings. In my very honest opinion.

Hey, that's specist (speciest?). How would you like it if everyone in the room were staring at your rack?


Spexxvet  Friday Jun 2 09:24 AM

I already am...



Kitsune  Friday Jun 2 09:44 AM

I wonder if they'll name him. The mummified coondog that died after getting stuck in a tree has since been named thanks to a contest run by the museum. Of course, it is "Stuckie".



LabRat  Friday Jun 2 10:30 AM

If I had a rack worth parading, I'd be struttin' like a pre-stuck buck.:p

Hair and bone is excellent fertilizer.
