Deer Duke It Out in Front Yard
Occurred on December 7, 2022 / Cedar City, Utah, USA
Info from Licensor: "My family was home wrapping Christmas presents when we heard what sounded like a door slamming over and over. After checking the house, we looked outside and noticed the freshly fallen snow was all marked up outside on the front lawn. We suspected a deer scuffle since they frequent the area and are in rut season. It was also the evening of the full cold December moon. It didn't occur to me until a little later to check the door camera and holy cow it was all there! While a doe looked on, two bucks proceeded to fight over her perhaps? The alpha charged at the other, knocking over a decorative wine barrel, then they locked antlers. Back and forth they pushed each other banging into our front porch, ultimately breaking a sprinkler. The rail thankfully withstood the force."
