Have you seen a Coyote with Five Feet before?

Well, this deformed coyote has them.

In a Facebook post shared by Mac Frederick, we see a coyote with five feet. This beast has a strange mutation that has given it an extra foot. These incredible pictures and x-rays prove the five-footed coyote is for real.


The above and below x-ray photographs show the skeletal makeup of this one-of-a-kind mutant coyote.

What would cause such a deformation in this otherwise normal coyote? A genetic defect certainly caused the growth of the extra foot. Could it have been influenced by toxins this coyote came in contact with, or was there a mix-up during gestation? The reasons for this mutation may remain a mystery for some time.

Don’t mess with this Donkey

Donkeys hate coyotes, so much so that they sometimes go postal on intruding ‘yotes like this donkey did.
South Carolina landowner Steve Hipps has a grass pasture in his backyard that’s guarded by a donkey named Buck.

Buck used to share the pasture with a female donkey, but when she had babies, Hipps decided to let Buck have it all to himself.

“I just wanted something in there to keep the grass eaten down, and I’ve always loved donkeys,” Hipps told Georgia Outdoor News.

But Hipps got more than a grass muncher; he got a coyote killing machine.

One afternoon, Hipps’ neighbor phoned him up to say that he’d just seen a coyote headed towards his pasture. Coyotes seldom come out during the day, but this particular female coyote had been scouting out the neighborhood during daylight hours.

When Hipps went outside to check, Buck had already taken care of it.

“By the time I got over there, Buck was stomping the coyote. Then he reached down and picked him up by the neck and started slinging him like a rag doll. I grabbed my phone and got two pictures.”

Buck doesn’t mess around. Buck might also have a screw or two loose.

Though, Buck’s behavior is pretty normal for a donkey. Farmers often keep donkeys with their livestock, particularly cows and horses, because donkeys don’t take any sh** from coyotes.

They’ll stomp on, and buck, intruding coyotes to death, or they’ll warn the rest of the herd by braying.

Not all donkeys do, though. Some are about as dumb as you’d expect. And, donkeys are pretty slow, so they are typically the first animals to get taken down when a pack invades.

But not Buck. I mean, look at the guy – just don’t look him in the eyes.

This mule deer buck looks ready to play ball

Football season is over, but this buck is ready to tryout for next year season. The way this buck struts around the gridiron, he sure looks ready to go into Beast mode.
I don’t know how well he could carry the football, but I bet he would be the fastest one on the field!

This footage was recorded at a Manitou Springs High School football game and published by KOAA 5 in Colorado Springs.

Typically, bucks don’t start doing stupid things like this until the rut. Most Colorado mule deer rut in November when they really behave like chickens missing their respective heads.

Three for a Buck

Finding a three-legged mule deer is rare. It’s even more uncommon to see an antlered doe.
With all the predators in the West, it’s extremely uncommon to see a mule deer with a significant handicap. Not only does it make them an easier meal for coyotes, bears, wolves, and cougar, but it makes them more susceptible to malnourishment and weather.

Taking that into consideration, you would probably feel pretty lucky to come across such a sight. But, what if you that three-legged mule deer was an antlered doe? You imagine no one would believe you unless you have a video of it.

Tammy Russell Facebook captures this on video below!

In Tammy’s Facebook post she says:

Doe with velvet horns and her three legged velvet friend. Anybody who knows deer knows that does don’t have horns and there shouldn’t be any bucks with velvet horns this time of year. Unless its also a doe or been castrated. In the comments section of Tammy’s post she added:

We were looking for nuts on both them but couldn’t see any then the one pee’d. [We’re] thinking they may both be does. If the bigger one is not a doe then its nutless.
What do you think? Is the three-legged mule deer a buck or antlered doe?

Another version is:

Occasionally, you see a doe with antlers.

Occasionally, you see a buck with velvet on his antlers in December.

Occasionally, you see an animal with three legs.

How often do you see a deer with velvet antlers in December and three legs?

This funny critter seems to have no problem walking around and hopping fences and navigating snow with three legs, whether it be Buck or Doe.

Here’s to hoping for a long and interesting life for this grass-muncher. It’ll be neat to see what comes of them!

Bucks in a Bloody Fight

As hunters, we live for moments when bucks are active or vocal while in the deer woods. It is not always that hunters witness another buck kill one of its own.

This bloody buck fight is a rare sight and hardly occurs much less in front of hunters.

This hunter luckily took his video camera into the woods on the right day. One buck encroached on another buck’s does, and the older buck left no question about who was boss.

However, after this buck’s victory he can’t handle the infamous snort wheeze. The rut can be to the demise of even the smartest bucks when it comes to locking down with does. This buck experiences victory and defeat moments later.

Coyotes has a big Impact on Deer Population

When coyotes pack up, big game is no match for these killers. Witness this stunning game camera footage of a whole pack of coyotes on the hunt.

Seeing fewer deer this season? Well a coyote pack this size or larger just may be devouring your game.

A single coyote is a formidable predator. Now, combine multiple coyotes, and their killing power increases to large game with no issues. Craig Kavajecz shared on Facebook a video that just may shock you. At least eight coyotes by our count make their way down this trail in search of prey. Now, that is a team of killers with a swagger.

If coyotes are in your hunting territory, let them know who’s boss. If not, expect to see less game next season.

Bear Pranking

Would you this to your co-workers?

Bear!

Or not.

With friends like these, who needs enemies? Sometimes office teasing goes a little beyond “Go pick up a bottle of elbow grease” or “See if you can find me the level straightener”, and delves into the pre-planned pranking. case in point: The “bear” milling around outside! On a construction site, seeing a bear probably isn’t all that far from the realm of possibility. I’ve never been one to tease somebody for having a functioning Fight or Flight reflex, though.

What do you think? Seen or done any good pranks lately? I’m sure we’d love to see some ideas… purely for scientific reasons, of course!

11 Yr Old boy with Cerebral Palsy Blood trails First Buck

It’s a heart warming video that will make you smile. This video courtesy of Dana Sanders is just that. Watch this young boy with Cebreal Palsy track a deer, and there will be quite the big smile on your face.

It’s definitely a Kodak moment with family. The fact that this family was able to have this experience is something they are sure to never forget.

8 Angler Pickup Lines

The pickup line to reel in a catch. It’s a classic when it comes to catching the attention of the opposite sex.
There are pickup lines in every Angler walk of life. So, I asked some of my fishing buddies about some of the best lines they’ve heard of (or used).

These guys are serious anglers that they started telling me about different types of fishing lines used for different fishes, literally. Guess that’s why they’re single, or haven’t been on dates in quite a while. However, once I explained what kind of “line” I meant, they came up with several.

Here are eight of them: four to use in public and four for when you’re fishing!

In Public
“A shark just ate my girlfriend. Will you be my new one?” (yes, very corny)

“Hey baby, if I were a fish, I’d be hooked on you.” (corny)

Any pickup line leaves you open to a comeback. This one might seem cute, but it could also result in, “I’m not fishing for your type.”

“There are plenty of fish in the sea, but I see you with me.”

Another one that could get a nibble… or, “You better get your eyes checked, because I don’t see that.”

“I don’t know if you’ve ever been fishing, but I think we should hook up.”

That one could result in a right hook to the jaw!

On the Water
“I was so enchanted by your beauty that I ran my boat into yours. So, I am going to need your name and number for insurance purposes.”

Okay, this one has a poetic, romantic feel. It could work; just don’t ruin your boat. Maybe just a gentle bump.

“Want to compare tan lines?”

I’m borderline on this one. Would it get a giggle or a slap? On the other hand, what if the other person agrees right away? That could be a bad sign.

“You’re on the small side, but I wouldn’t throw you back.”

Yeah, that sounds very flattering. Insert your own comeback line here.

“Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I float by again?”

It’s charming. It’s sweet. And, more importantly, it doesn’t put your boat in jeopardy.

Oh, yes, there were more vulgar responses … which really explained why my buddies hadn’t been on a date in years.

A pickup line should break the ice, not get your jaw broken… or your fishing gear.
