Kansas game warden frees tangled deer with single gunshot


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas game warden is getting attention for a video that shows him firing a single shot from a handgun to disentangle the antlers of two whitetail stags.

The Kansas Wildlife, Parks & Tourism agency released the video from the warden’s body camera showing his sharpshooting skills.

Neither deer was hurt in the effort.

The agency says a bowhunter contacted a game warden about the entangled deer. Two game wardens responded and threw a towel over the animals’ heads to get them to freeze.

One warden then took careful aim and shooting part of one deer’s antler off, freeing the animals.
