Moment a hunter uses an electric saw to free two rutting bucks

Quick-thinking locals rescued two deer whose antlers had become hopelessly intertwined. 

The group of Kent County hunters took mercy on the rutting bucks who were unable to help themselves as they battled to break free of each other. 

Kent County Corrections Officer Brad Lyons was quick to wade into the cold waters of Pratt Creek Lake in Michigan armed with an electric saw to help the animals.

The saga started on Wednesday when Insurance agent Mark Johnson spotted the two animals entangled in a field northwest of 84th street and Alden Nash Avenue. 

Johnson sensed the emergency of the situation. ‘I called my buddy, Brad Lyons, I’m like ‘Brad, I think we got two bucks locked up. I think we need to do something,’ he said. 

Johnson knew the animals wouldn’t be able to break apart themselves and would either die of exhaustion or starvation. ‘Sometimes even coyotes would come in and do it,’ he said.

Lyons quickly stepped in to help and the group equipped themselves with ropes and a tree limb saw. While attempting to escape the humans, the deer fell into the creek.

‘Getting them in the creek was the best thing that could have happened,’ said Wilcox.

Johnson, Lyons and another friend involved in the rescue operation are hunters and in different circumstances would have seen the deer as a great opportunity. 

Instead, just the sawed-off antler was kept as a trophy.
