Skip to comments.Deer attacks two men, then takes man's cigarettes
Posted on 11/20/2012 7:57:33 AM PST by crusty old prospector
Whitehouse, Texas Joseph Rose and Cole Kellis were leaving their home in Whitehouse on Friday morning when they noticed a deer in their front yard.
Rose approached the deer and he says the deer seemed friendly. But then Kellis and Rose say the deer then charged them and started to attack.
Rose and Kellis ran to Rose's pick-up truck to try to get away from the wild buck. The deer then "poked" Rose in his ribs, so Rose jumped out of his truck into the back-bed. Rose says he left his driver-side door open and the deer climbed in and took his pack of cigarettes that were sitting in his center console.
The deer starting eating Rose's smokes, and when Rose tried to get them back, Rose says the deer got more aggressive.
They then had to call Whitehouse police and the Game Warden. When police arrived they had to tase the deer and then Rose says it took more than 5 men to restrain the buck.
KETK spoke to Smith County Game Warden, Dustin Dockery, and he says, "Admire deer from a distance but do not approach them because they can be dangerous."
What kind of person approaches a buck??
Sounds like the buck had a nicotine addiction.
I feel for the deer. Quitting smoking was the hardest thing I ever did in my life.
There are reasons for approaching a wild animal, but “it seemed friendly” is not one of them. Venison would be the only sensible explanation for this behavior, and trying to kill the buck using lung cancer is not as efficient as using firearms or even archery.
Sounds like the deer would walk a mile for a Camel.
Thank you. I'll be here all week. Be sure to tip your waitress well.
Our small dog was attacked by a doe a few months ago in our backyard while I was out there in the yard.
(went out to call the dog after hearing a ruckus)
The doe had a few fawns on the other side of the hog wire fence yelling their heads off and I got there just in time to see the doe come after the dog, trounced it and was turning to come back for a 2nd strike and I yelled and dog and I ran. The doe followed us for a ways and then stopped and snorted. Then left. The dog was unhurt, but a nervous wreck for hours.
Yep. I think it’s rutting season.
I wonder if that deer is able to apply under Obamao Care to go to a smoking cessation clinic?
It’s hunting season, damn it!
That buck was made of venison. What has happened to Texas, that food can cow not one, but two grown men.
Oh, they were not carrying, and so were forced to cower before venison stew. Serves ‘em right for not exercising their Second Amendment right to be, as Jefferson said, “..at all times armed...”.
Could one then conclude that the unarmed are subject to, and deserve, being bucked?
Oh , Deer !!
Perhaps doe pee is another secret ingredient in the guys smokes. ;-)
The buck stops here.
“When was the last time you could get cigarettes for a buck?”
We used to feed the ones at the Ag extention at UofI Pop’s Newports when I was a kid. They LOVED cigarettes.
That is a nice buck. I am surprised no else around has got him yet. Too residential although that doesn’t stop anyone around here?
A spokesdeer for the Socialist Ruminents of America (SRA) said that humans should voluntarily share their cigarettes with less fortunate wildlife, and the entire incident was caused by homo sapien greed.
“Yep. I think its rutting season.”
Don’t the cigarettes come in to play after the rutting is done?
I have seen my dogs eat my spent plug of chewing tobacco after I spit it out. Maybe it helps them get rid of worms?
Three deer used the automatic doors at a Kohl’s department store to get in... and then leave.
Shoppers in Iowa got an unusual glimpse of wildlife Monday morning when a doe and two fawns wandered into a department store.
Coralville Police Chief Barry Bedford says the deer used doors that open automatically to get into a Kohl’s store.
He says the fawns stayed in the store’s vestibule, but their mother made it into the store and headed toward the back.
Police say employees opened up some back doors and the doe exited. The two fawns turned around and used the automatic exit doors to leave the store.
No injuries or damage was reported.
deer getting a jump on their Black Friday shopping...
Oh see the little deer. Does the deer have a little doe?
Soitenly! Two bucks. *slap*
Possible caffeinated zombie deer alert
A Priest, a Minister and a Rabbi walk into a bar...
Hahahahahaha!!! Good one!
See, I told you; This is what happens when the government doesn’t offer free cigs and other stuff to immigrant deer families!!!..../sarc
I know. I know. I should have said what kind of idiot approaches a buck this time of year.
I would gladly share cigarettes or my snuff with any buck that gets within range. I will be on my stand all this weekend. Latitude 31 45’29” N; Longitude 95 38’19” W. Ya’ll come on by!
We have loads of them. Herds come through all the time. He was part of probably 12 or so that came through this morning. There is no hunting within 150 feet of a house, so just beyond him is fair game. But, that’s not much of a hunt. You could practically lead him further into the woods with a handful of grass, pet him, and then do him in. Colorado isn’t much for deer hunting other than going out and bagging one. I mean, if you can’t kill a deer in this State just hang your head and go back to LA or NYC where you must have come from. I’m not a deer hunter, don’t need or like the meat. It is pretty cool to nearly pet a small black bear in the morning sleeping on the front porch only to go to the back porch an hour later and see a couple of 10 point buck sleeping under the trees with their harem of a dozen does.
Bada-Bing!! (rim shot) Thanks!! I needed a laugh this morning!!
ROFL! This could go on all day! I mean we’ve herd most of these joke before but they’re still funny.
Cube chuckle. Thanks.
They should have at least offered the buck a light so he wouldn’t have had to chew the filters to get his nicotine high. I can only imagine what the deer in Colorado and Washington will be doing to get some Mary Jo Juana.
Is that a doe in your yard? Beautiful.
They’re beautiful to look at but I keep my distance from all of them, even the little ones.
I don’t worry about the little ones attacking but it’s not in the fawn’s interest to come close to humans. Sooner or later they’ll meet up with a hunter.
The bigger ones are a different story. Very unpredictable, especially if they’re protecting their young or if it’s mating season. And then there’s the problem of ticks. They’re beautiful though.
I am sure that in this vulgar day and age that the first words out of their mouths were “WTB”.
“I think it’s rutting season”.
Last week, my husband was driving home and in the neighborhood. He saw a rotty chasing three does... and behind the rottie was a huge buck chasing him. Unfortunately, they ran behind a neighbor’s house so we never knew the end of the story or who won. Rottie or buck? You decide!
The picture is fuzzy but that’s an 8 point buck and a doe to his right in the scrub oak. The rest of the herd came a few minutes later.
Heh! I’d imagine the buck. ;-)
The guy was a target until he tried to get his cigarettes back. Then he was an idiot.
Those two guys don’t sound like typical Texans. Maybe they moved there from California, driven out by taxes.
I thought they had better sense in Texas to approach a buck—especially in rut season. I would expect this in California or Massachusetts, but not Texas.
Maybe I should start taping cigarettes to trees leading to my deer stand...and hang a pack from a string—in sure bow range.
