Minnesota Officer Uses Taser to Free Entangled Deer

Minnesota Officer Uses Taser to Free Entangled Deer

Apparently a few Minnesota police officers have found a new and innovative way to use a Taser.

After deliberating about the best way to free a pair of horn-locked bucks, one of which was already dead, two South Lake Minnetonka police officers decided the safest way to untangle the bucks was to use a Taser on the living buck.


Now that's what we call creative problem solving. Not only did the Taser incapacitate the buck long enough to allow the officers to cut the horns loose, it did so in a safe manner for all parties involved. After a few moments the buck ran off, back to business as usual. We've seen a lot of different approaches to setting tangled bucks free, but this has got to be one of the best.
