DWR biologists remove mass of string from southern Utah deer
PAROWAN, Utah — A mule deer in southern Utah was “stringing” the blues before wildlife crews cut what they believe was a hammock from its antlers.
Biologists with the Utah Divison of Wildlife Resources removed the massive tangle of string from the mature mule deer buck in southern Utah last week.
DWR officials said the deer was spotted near Parowan with the mess of thread in its antlers, which was obscuring its vision.
Biologists located and tranquilized the deer before cutting the string off and releasing him.
They said the deer appeared to be fine after it was released.
