I work for the FD in gwinnett, and I’ve seen some monsters while running around. We had a big one behind the firehouse first of the season, ran a call down the road, and the construction crew said they saw him dead on the side of the road.
Those are bad and the “pretty” ones with the little short bars with spike tops every other spindle are good at killing fawns and yearlings. I wish they were at least all round topped so deer would stand a chance.
The real shame to me is having the inability to quickly and humanely dispatch the animal. If it were my fence it would have been taken care of quickly and cleanly and I would have consumed the meat and been thankful for it. No need to wait on Tweedledee and dum to shut down traffic and create a viral spectacle out of it snapping photo opps while a magnificent animal clearly suffered.
