Deer seeks tryout with Globetrotters

No one knows how this deer in Bethel Park, Pa., managed to get a basketball stuck in his antlers. But he hung around long enough in Andy Kovac’s backyard to get his picture taken. Kovac got several good photos (total 8), which were posted by the local CBS affiliate. He says the basketball is slowly losing air and should soon be gone.

  1. Ha! Nothing about deer surprises me, PT, I watch their antics in the forest here. I wonder if he will miss the ball when it goes?

  2. Something kind of sad about this deer stuck with our plaything. I remember once seeing a squirrel that had a piece of plastic around it’s middle, and it look as if it was cutting his abdomen….

    • This doesn’t seem as dangerous as some of the things I’ve seen, like an elk with a tire around her neck, and it seems it will be gone soon. Too often, though, this sort of thing threatens the animal’s life.

  3. They say ‘one mans trash is another mans treasure,’ but this is ridiculous! 🙄

  4. Did you ever read Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose? This reminded me of that. Anyeay, if the ball doesn’t fall off when it deflates, it will come off when the antlers do this winter. Still, that can’t be comfortable! “Ya know, Vern, sometimes I feel like the weight of the world is bearing down on me. So much on my mind…”

  5. It would be kind of interesting to know how the females react to this fabulous antler “display”…

  6. He’s got game. Females seem to adore athletes? He’s been hanging out in town too long looking in windows?
    (Funny and much less dangerous that a container stuck on muzzle)
