I was watching the late news last night and a story caught my attention of a deer seen with Christmas lights in its antlers. According to the Associated Press - Santa may not need Rudolph's red nose this year. Residents in Colorado Springs, CO have been reporting a deer with a tangle of Christmas lights wrapped in its antlers. Neighbors have tried to chase the buck to remove the lights, with no success.
State wildlife officials say it's not unusual for deer to get tangled in outdoor decorations. The had reports two weeks ago of another deer in CO Springs with lights caught in its antlers. Wildlife managers say they simply leave decorated deer along unless they hear reports of deer with cords caught around their necks or mouths.
Residents have been asked to use shorter strings of lights and to keep lights off trees and bushes.
