    Officers use taser to free tangled deer

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070117/...t/tangled_buck

    Wed Jan 17, 5:08 PM ET

    Confronted with a deer whose antlers were tangled in a rope swing at a rural home, two officers saw no good choices. They weren't about to try to free the animal themselves. It weighed several hundred pounds and was thrashing wildly. A bullet in the skull seemed the alternative.

    "They thought they were going to have to kill it out of compassion," Lt. Jim Strovink of the Clackamas County sheriff's office said Wednesday. "It was going to die a slow, agonizing death."

    Then Deputy Jeff Miller (news, bio, voting record) thought of the stun gun, commonly called a Taser, after its maker, used to immobilize out-of-control prisoners or suspects.

    Zap!

    The deer stopped moving. The officers, one a sheriff's deputy, the other a state trooper, untangled the rope, which was dangling from a tree limb, and freed the buck.

    Not long after, the deer "took off happy as a clam," Strovink said. "That was pretty good thinking."

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Good thinking. One lucky deer - bet he stays even further away from people after this.

    I know of at least one incident where a snake (boa or python, can't remember) was constricting a guy and a cop used a Taser on the snake to get it to let go. Worked, too.

    Wait till the deer sues them for tasering it. And for comparing it to an invertebrate.
