Looks like a superman punch to the mouth followed by submission from a side mount.

I don’t hunt anymore, but venison summer sausage is better than anything you can buy at the store.

Jerky too

This dude walks into a bar and sees a penguin sitting on a barstool, a shot of Jack Daniel’s in front of him.

The penguin downs the shot and walks out.

“Wow!” says the dude to the bartender, “Never seen anything like it”.

The bartender shrugs and says, “He’s just a welder on the construction site nearby.”

The dude, says, “Hey, I own a circus and would hire him!”

The bartender: “Come back tomorrow, he’s here most every day after work, has one drink and goes home.”

Circus owner returns the next day, and as expected, the penguin shows up, and orders a shot of Jack Daniel’s.”

The circus owner approaches him and says, “Say, I’ve never seen anything like it, I own a circus and could give you a well paying job.”

The penguin says, “Well, sure, I wouldn’t mind working for you, but what is a welder going to do in a circus?”

What’s next. With my luck (none) and hunting deer and catching catfish, I’m waiting for catfish to start flopping through the front door.

I’d tackle it also.

The deer was clearly disoriented: Reading is not in northeastern PA.

Indeed. I live near Reading and it’s clearly near the southeast of the state.

No, but maybe it should be.

Yeah we should move a whole town because a reporter can’t spend 15 seconds on Google maps. Seems practical.

is tackling your prey considered hunting or more along the lines of a bar fight?

There's no word on where the deer was released.

Who said he was released?

I used to live “near Reading” too. Wernersville, Sinking Spring areas.

Although I always knew I wasn’t in N.E. Pa.
