The hunter, Bob Long, was identified from the wildlife agency. He took aim at a buck off in the distance with ”big antlers.” After making his kill Long approached the animal and made an “astounding” discovery. The buck was “carrying around another set of antlers and part of a decomposing carcass.”
Kentucky state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources announced that a man in Ballard County recently bagged a “two-headed” deer.
State wildlife officials said, the deer was "truly a rare harvest." The two headed deer has gained thousands of reactions on social media, with users responding in both awe and disgust.
“Bet they were fighting and that's the end result!! Just idea,” one person commented.
“Wildest thing I’ve ever seen!” another wrote.
“That deer had to be stuck to the dead one a while… the stench,” a third said.
While it’s unclear how the buck in became entangled with the carcass’ antlers, this unusual instance is not unheard of.
Back in 2014, a buck in Kansas was reportedly found with its antlers entangled with those of its rival. And in January, a North Dakota man shared photos with the Duluth News Tribune of a buck in a similar situation.
As they say, two heads are better than one, for a hunter, two sets of antlers are better than one unsevered deer head.
