I am just amazed by the amount of garden stuff wild animals can get entangled in… but if you have ever been in American suburbia over Christmas or Halloween, they really do fill up their gardens with all sorts, other than hammocks . Where do they keep it all?
It’s a good job there are no wild animals left in the UK, and even if there were, most people have sensibly built a 6ft fence around their garden anyway.
“Oh, what a tangled web we weave…” – Sir Walter Scott.
We’re not sure exactly what happened here, but somehow this deer got tangled up in what appears to be a hammock. This photo, sent to us by reader Jan Nelson, was taken near Gail Gardner in Prescott.
Arizona Game and Fish (AZGFD) are aware of the situation, and are trying to locate the deer. If they can find him, they will attempt to help extricate the deer from it’s entanglements.
In an urban wildland interface, wildlife can find themselves in unexpected predicaments. Humans can make their yards safer for wildlife with prevention in mind, according to the Humane Society.
In the meantime, if you happen to see this unfortunate young buck, please do not attempt to approach it. Please report the sighting to AZGFD at 623.236.7201
