Three Ohio Bucks Found Drowned with Antlers Locked.

Click through to Field & Stream for the full story and lots more pictures, but be warned, some of them are grisly:

The best way to untangle the pileup, Burke and Shields decided, was to sever the heads of two of the deer and remove their bodies; then the third deer would be removed intact, with the racks of the first two bucks still locked in its antlers.

So, yeah.

(Hat tip to Radiolab listener Mercedes!)

Don’t ask me. That’s your problem. It does look as though you ought to do something. Self-laceration in a vacuum eventually gets rather boring. But it’s your personal cul-de-sac, you invented it, you will have to think of your own way out.
