VIDEO: Ill. Cop Shoots Antlers To Separate Deer

Police used a handgun to blast apart the antlers of two tangled bucks that were unable to separate themselves after a bitter duel.

After the fourth shot, the antler finally breaks and the pair runs off into the wild—one of the animals wobbling and with a limp.

The unnamed trio of cops—an Illinois Conservation Police officer, a state trooper and a Will County Forest Preserve officer—are then heard talking about having to put the animal down.
