Once I caught a fish thi-i-i-i-i-s big

 

UTAH

There he was, an eight-point buck, stranded on a narrow ledge five feet above Lake Powell. What could two law enforcement officers — one from Utah, the other from the Glen Canyon National Monument — do? They didn’t want to tranquilize the mule deer, so after making it leap into the water, the two men threw two lassos over its head and wrestled the animal into a boat. “We kind of piled on him until I could finally get him hog-tied and get a blindfold on him,” Sean Spencer told the Salt Lake Tribune. Their “fishing for a buck” was successful; the deer was set free in an area without steep cliffs.
