Getting close to a large buck doesn’t sound like a good idea at all to many, let alone two. However, when a couple of farmers found two deer who were stuck together by their antlers along with barbed wire, they couldn’t just stand back.
The men weren’t sure how long these two bucks have been stuck to each other with painful barbed wire tangled around them, but the two animals were clearly still in complete and total panic. It’s likely that the bucks were fighting and then got stuck in the barbed wire fence.
They realized that they needed to be set free as quickly as possible, and decided to try and resolve the problem themselves.
Of course, they proceeded with the necessary caution. “You gotta be careful”, one of the men said.
The two brave farmers from Awatere Valley, New Zealand, decided to slowly come closer, and luckily, both deer managed to calm down just a little bit. They waited for the right moment until the two of them were relatively still on the ground, and decided to inspect how they were stuck up close.
Armed with large outdoor pliers, two of the men then tried to get rid of as much barbed wire as they could. One of them was holding the deer by their antlers to keep them still, which was probably just as difficult as cutting the barbed wire.
Luckily, it’s as if the two deer realized that the men were just trying to help them, and they stayed calm… For a while.
When the barbed wire started getting a little bit looser, the animals tried to anxiously run away, almost hitting one of the men in the process. It was clear from the beginning that this wouldn’t be a rescue operation without its dangers, and we can definitely say that the men were brave and courageous for even trying.
Even though the two stressed deer scared them a little bit, they weren’t planning on giving up so soon. One of them then even grabbed a piece of wire with his bare hands so his partner could cut it open.
Finally, they manage to release one of the bucks from its predicament, who immediately ran free.
However, the other deer was still very much stuck to the barbed wire and started panicking even more. It ran around the place like crazy but was always pulled back by the barbed wire still stick to his antlers.
Eventually, the animal seemed a bit tired, so one fo the farmers saw it as a perfect opportunity to get closer once again. Their encounter was rather physical and nervewracking, to say the least. The men risked their lives to help set this animal free, and they finally succeeded after a couple of tries.
Just like the other buck earlier, he ran away into the wilds and went his own way.
It can’t be stressed enough how brave and selfless these men were for even attempting such a dangerous rescue!
Footage of the whole operation quickly went viral on Facebook with millions of views. People can’t praise these farmers enough, and rightfully so. They truly went above and beyond.
“Crazy, yes! Brave, yes! Good job guys. You probably save their lives. God Bless you for that.” Jeanie Richards commented.
“Those men were so brave….omg..they could have been hurt themselves but were so determined to help these stressed animals… congrats on this great deed guys!” Karlene Frey added.
What a brave rescue and thrilling rescue operation!
