At the end of last month, we reported on the sighting of a young buck that had gotten itself entangled in what appears to be a hammock. Reader Jan Nelson, who lives near Gail Gardner Street in Prescott, sent us a photo at the time. Upon contacting the AZ Game and Fish Department (AZGFD), they said that they would look for it.
Here’s what he looked like then:
Nelson spotted the deer again on Sunday, and although the hammock looks even more tattered, it still is stubbornly tangled around the buck’s horns. The photo below is a bit blurrier, but it is still obviously enmeshed in the woven hammock.
If you see this young deer, please report the sighting to AZGFD at 623.236.7201.
