Well I went home to the coast this weekend and my parents and me and the wife decided to go down to Mrytle Beach Saturday Morning for Breakfast.  We got up and headed out around 8:20am.   Well as we are going through town Crystal points out a deer stuck in a fence.  Yes a deer and yes stuck in a fence.  I whipped the car around and pulled up to check it out.  IT was a little spike.  It was half through and its hips wouldn't let it go any  farther through and its ribcage wouldn't let it back out.  It had to have been there for a while cause it was exhausted.  He had tore the back of his legs up from kicking trying to get out.  When i approached it, it tried to kick just a few seconds and gave out.  I couldn't even hold itself up anymore.  Well I pried on the bars to the fence and they wouldn't give much and squeezing on its rigs and hips wasn't getting me anywhere either.  I am not sure any of you have heard a deer moan in agony like this little guy was it really did hurt your heart.  Well I finally decided maybe if I stand him up and try to pull out from the top of the fence he might compress enough to come out.  That worked.  When I got him free he litterally was still as limp as a new baby.  I picked him up and carried him about 30yds every few feet letting him touch the ground with his feet.  He finally realized he could move and stumbled off.  He turned back and looked at me and I swear his eyes where saying thank you.  I felt good about myself for helping.  I know i would have shot him in a treestand and hell he wasn't far from my house and I may one day but I can't stand to see an animal suffer like I knew he was.


Check out the couple pics my dad snapped as I was working to free him.

Cool little story! I've seen pictures of huge deer dead on top of fences that couldn't get off and must have suffered a while, I'm glad you spared this one

Well done Graham.
 
That is something the tree huggers and PETA folks will never understand.  How we can love animals and still hunt them.

Cool bro.  I did the once to a small buck caught in a barbwire fence.  He was sure happy to get away.
