Deer are graceful, athletic creatures, but they’re not particularly known for being good basketball players. Yet it appears one in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania decided he wanted to practice his jump shot.

Pittsburgh’s CBS affiliate KDKA reports that Andy Kovac and his wife spotted a deer in their backyard who’d gotten a basketball stuck in his antlers. They’re not too worried, though: the ball won’t keep the deer from eating, and it appears to be deflating, so should dislodge itself sometime soon.


I do not think this is funny but I feel sorry for the deer. He now can not defend himself. Who knows if or when he will be able to get rid of the ball. Put yourself in his place. How would you feel?
