    Man battles buck with his bare hands, and wins
    Arkansan subdues five-point whitetail deer that crashed through window

    The Associated Press
    Updated: 9:24 a.m. ET Nov. 2, 2005


    BENTONVILLE, Ark. - For 40 exhausting minutes, Wayne Goldsberry battled a buck with his bare hands in his daughter's bedroom.

    Goldsberry finally subdued the five-point whitetail deer that crashed through a bedroom window at his daughter's home Friday. When it was over, blood splattered the walls and the deer lay on the bedroom floor, its neck broken.

    Goldsberry was at his daughter's home when he heard glass breaking. He went back to check on the noise and found the deer.

    "I was standing about like this peeking around the corner when the deer came out of the bedroom," said Goldsberry, demonstrating while peering around his kitchen wall. The deer ran down the hall and into the master bedroom "jumping back and forth across the bed."

    "I could tell he was really tearing up the place back there," Goldsberry said.

    Goldsberry entered the bedroom to confront the deer and, after a brief struggle, emerged to tell his wife to call police. After returning to the bedroom, the fight continued. Goldsberry finally was able to grip the animal and twist its neck, killing it.

    "He was trying to get up a corner wall and I just came in behind him and grabbed him by the horns and just started pushing down," said Goldsberry.

    Goldsberry, sore from the struggle, dragged the dead animal out of the house.

    "He got kicked several times. He was walking bowlegged for awhile," Deputy Doug Gay said.

    Benton County Sheriff Keith Ferguson said that when he arrived he found the deer dead in the front yard. Goldsberry intended to have the deer processed for its meat.

    Gay said that, this time of year, bucks that see their reflection in windows often charge them, believing the mirror image to be a rival.

    On Monday in Pine Bluff, the principal of Coleman Elementary School rid his building of a deer by opening a door. Students were preparing for dismissal Monday when a deer crashed through a window and bounded through a hallway.

    The buck floundered on the school's slick floor for about three minutes exiting via a door along the side of a hallway. Principal Bill Tietz said the deer was slightly injured from the glass and lost an antler. Tietz said the animal leapt a 6-foot fence after leaving the school.

    I don't know what I'd do if a deer burst into my home like that. Probably I'd just shoot the thing.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Just keep a tape of DanO's thank you speech and start playing that. After a couple minutes of that, the deer will either be sound asleep on your floor or it will have run back out of the house and into traffic to end its misery.

    I would imagine he now sings tenor in the church choir.

    Heck, I once wrassled my wife for two hours for 20 bucks!
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
