Deer with n ring Glen GreenUefs 8-point buck carried this 2-inch pipe coupling above one hoof without changing its running habits. Glen Greenlief did not notice anything unusual about the fine 8-point buck as it ran freely across the Robert Reed farm on Nutter Run. This was last Monday morning. November 24. There was no hesitation or limping as the deer attempted to make its getaway. But Mr. Greenlief's aim was good and the shot true. When he went to tag the buck. he noticed that its right foot carried an unusual ornament. That is. unusual for a free running deer. Just above the hoof was a heavy 2-inch pipe coupling. Obviously, the deer had stepped through the coupling at an earlier age, The hoof was much too large for it to be removed. It bad also learned to run without limping during the days or months it had contended with the unusual weight on one hoof. being killed by 16-year old Mike Montgomery, Glenville, on Sliding Run.
