TWO Cornish fisherman came back with a bigger catch than usual, after reportedly hooking a live deer which had fallen into the sea.

Chris Earl and Tony Allsopp were checking lobster pots when they spotted the animal swimming about 1km off the English coast.

They threw a line around the beast and hauled it on board by its antlers.

Bert and I were out on the Bluebird II. I looked over th' side and saw a deer, a-swimmin' alongside us.

"Bert!" I yelled. "Throw a rope 'round 'er!" Bert threw a rope 'round 'er.

We hitched 'er up into the boat and Bert started a-squeezin' water out of 'er. By the time we got back to Kennebunkport, that deer was good as new. But Bert were all tuckered out.

We let 'er go on the dock. Virgil Bliss says we ought to have kept that deer as a pet and charged admission. But I don't reckon a deer that would swim out to sea is likely to be all that interesting, just standing 'bout on shore.

I saw the same thing off the coast in Laguna, Calif. We were have a Sunday brunch and one of our friends spotted a pair of antlers in the water. We called the coast guard and they paddled out, snagged it by the antlers and brought it back in. The deer had been spooked and crashed through someone’s sliding glass door and it headed to the nearby ocean and started swimming towards Catalina. I heard it had sustained serious injuries from the glass and they had to put it down. :^(

Quite easy. I always use my fillet knife when I’m butchering. You can get right down to the bone and do a really good job.

One time I hooked a catfish that was so big that when it swam down the river its whiskers knocked over trees on the shore. True, I swear it!
