I think the same thing happened to Coop

Arkansas man kills deer with bare hands

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 dead 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. The deer ran down the hall and into the master bedroom – “jumping back and forth across the bed.”

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.

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

“He got kicked several times. He was walking bowlegged for a while,” Deputy Doug Gay said.

  1. Wow. You know, it’s not uncommon for Canadian white tail to kill wolves with their horns. It’s a bloody miracle that he made it out of that wee altercation intact.

    That said, I do remember being on my paternal grandfather’s ranch when one of the lease hunters killed a big ass buck with a bowie knife. Apparently the dear was wounded. This guy was some psychotic ex-special forces type, so he jumped it from a tree and stabbed it to death. He did managed to get gored in his thigh though – so points to the herbavore.

  2. I didn’t understand why he went BACK into the bedroom. Although, Josh just said he would’ve done the same thing. Must be a redneck thing.

  3. Umm, maybe the confined space kept the deer from laying in some “deadly’ blows. Why didn’t he just grab his .375 and shot the SOB deer, dear?
