Hunters rescue deer from coyotes

by Editorial Staff | February 5, 2014

These hunters spotted a deer in trouble and helped it escape what could have been an ugly demise. We don’t encourage people to interact with wildlife like this — it could have gone badly for these men — but we certainly can appreciate the risk they took.
