It’s a fact that many know, but an occurrence which is hardly witnessed. Recently, however, rare footage of a deer shedding its antlers was captured on camera and later shared on Facebook.
“Ann Sivori kindly shared her spectacular and unique trail camera video of an 8-point buck shedding both of its antlers in Northfield, Vermont,” wrote Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department and shared the video on their Facebook page. Further suggesting, the viewers should “watch closely” because the incident takes place really fast.
