My wildlife loop...

I have driven the same 48 miles to and from work every week for 21 years.  It is always an interesting drive and I consider it my personal wildlife loop.  I have seen elk, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, bobcats, mink, coyotes, antelope (they were very lost), and tons of deer.  

Today I saw something I have never seen before.  If you are faint of heart, please, do not watch.  It is a mule deer buck that killed it's rival in a fight and can't just walk away.  It is pretty amazing.  Sorry about the noise of the emergency flashers and music, I don't know anything about editing videos.

If you can't see the video try this U Tube site:

I hate to say that Mother Nature isn't always kind.

  1. It is a pretty surreal site. I've seen to bull elk stuck together until it's not so pretty also. On a lighter note, one day on my way home I saw a muskrat. They are almost cute little buggers.

  2. Wild to find, but a reality in life. Been getting a lot of buck around the farm, rut season makes them dizzy.

  4. My goodness he was really mad wasn't he? I am glad you thought to record it. I bet you do see wonderful things on your drive.
    I think I would like seeing all of the animals you see. I live in suburbia and I am amazed at what we see here. Though nothing like you do and that would be awesome. Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. Nature is not always kind. But it's an amazing thing to see.
