Default Dead Fawn

This morning as I was going into a tract of land we have been doing some work on I smelled something as I opened the gate. In a new, very tight hogwire fence behind the gate there was a spotted fawn, maybe 10 pounds with his back leg wrapped by the wire. Looked like he had been dead 3 or 4 days. I don't see how he got the wire wrapped around his leg like that, I think it would have been difficult to have taken wire pliars and a screwdriver to have made any kind of loop like that.

I found a dead Fawn by the house.I think Coyotes ran it up next to the fence to catch it.If it would had went another 50 yards I think it would have got away.

I hate fences. I mean they have there place obviously but they suck to. I found a buck that scored in the 130's with his antlers wrapped up in the fence on my lease in Oklahoma. He was a2 1/2 yr old, game ranger came and got him. Funny thing is I bet I walked by him 10 times before I finally smelled him.

Thats why I put two fence stays between each post.The wires cannot twist and the deer cannot get tangled with the stays. Most don't want to spend the .35 cents each to save the deer though.

Remember that this is hogwire or field fence, the one made with squares in the pattern, not barbwire. It is almost impossible to imagine how the deer twisted the wire around his little leg. I might go back up there Monday and see what kind of pictue I can get of it.

fawns get caught in hogwire fence all the time when they get spooked and try to jump over it, but mistime it... I find one or two just about every year with their hind leg caught in the fences around our protein feeders (hogs are a real problem down here)...

I really hate it when I find them too...
