Idaho Fish and Game officer rescues a deer entangled in baling twine

Idaho Fish and Game Conservation Officer John McLain earns his pay and the deer's gratitude on this day.  Believe me, if that deer had decided to fight during that process, it would have been very dangerous for the officer.  He also needs to sharpen up that incredibly dull knife. 


  1. It's interesting that the deer somehow instinctively realized the human was there to assist, and therefore, lay perfectly still during the process, giving no resistance, only leaping up and running away AFTER the human had finished cutting him free from the baling wire.

  2. The amazing thing is that is exactly the same knife he will use to skin that deer next year!

    1. Resource preservation, then utilization.

  3. If I remember correctly, he said somewhere in the comments of his original post, that it 'was probably one of the dumbest things he's ever done'.
