You might think twice about hunting deer if one comes charging at you with a gun. In the Czech Republic, a hunter’s gun got caught in a deer’s antlers. The animal promptly ran off.


Good morning. I’m Steve Inskeep. Hunters in the Czech Republic were following a deer when something went wrong. One of their dogs startled it. The deer ran toward them and one of its antlers caught the strap of a hunter’s rifle. It ran off. Someone later saw the deer, still with the gun, more than a mile away. Apparently, the gun isn’t loaded, but some future hunter may think twice about opening fire when encountering a deer that also appears to be armed. It’s MORNING EDITION.
