Deer loses head-butt with Wisconsin lawn ornament

A love-struck buck ran out of luck a week ago.

The seven-point buck was killed when it rammed a 640-pound concrete statue of an elk in the backyard of Mark and Carol Brye's home in rural Viroqua, Wis.

Bucks often fight during the breeding season, commonly called the rut. Dominant bucks defend breeding territories and female deer by sparring with subordinate bucks. Antler battles sometimes result in the death of one or both deer, but usually end with the biggest buck winning and the smaller buck high-tailing it out to another area.

Mark Brye, who owns Brye Plumbing in Viroqua, was still laughing about the suicidal buck he found near his elk statue last week.

I’m sure PETA will demand the statue be removed.

So you call ramming a 640 lb. statue fun? Not sure that's a good ad for your chamber of commerce.

Nor wearing cheese on your heads..........

No, the fun part is watching a DEER do it; not doing it myself.

Psssst... This is the ideal strategy for neutralizing Michael Moore. Simply use an automatic trail camera to scope out his normal feeding area without spooking the 'game' (make sure that it has a really-wide wide-angle lens), then place a giant reinforced-concrete cheeseburger and a super-sized bucket of Kevlar-coated French fries in his path, and sit back and wait for the ensuing hilarity - the rest of the story is left as an exercise for the reader...

Damn! Now there's going to be little baby statues running around everywhere!

To paraphrase Rudolph's song:

"All of the other moose and buffalo, used to laugh and call them names..."
