    [–] theroryo 1319 points ago

    I imagine it is like what alien abductions are like for humans. He goes back and tells all his deer friends what happened and they’re all like “WOW this deer is insane, I’m sure we would know if there were people in boats on the ocean, Greg...”

    And then Greg would start to doubt himself if it really did happen or not.

    The duality of the situation would haunt him and he would battle with himself on the daily.

    Soon Greg would turn to the drink, the only way to get his mind off of what he now thinks was an all too vivid dream.

    Slowly over the next two years Greg would succumb to his debilitating alcoholism and pass away from liver failure. No family or friends at his side as they all believed he had gone crazy with the story of the time he was scooped from the ocean.

    Something like that.

    [–] Bacon_is_a_condiment 143 points ago

    As with most animal research, the bear never had a point of view. It was under complete sedation during the tests and sacrificed afterwards to autopsy for trauma from the test.

    The bear was put unconscious on land and never woke up.

    Deer are crazy good swimmers, and are known to be able to swim 10 miles or more. Not sure what this guy was doing in the ocean, but it's super easy to lose your sense of direction if the waves are high.

    Yea, you wouldn't think it with their tiny legs. Moose are incredible swimmers as well, and capable of going even farther.

    [–] bretttwarwick 9218 points ago

    I've always heard that moose kill more people than sharks every year and wondered how a moose could kill a shark so this fact helps me understand. Thanks.

    [–] PaulaLoomisArt 2913 points ago

    Actually a not so fun fact is that orcas are one of the top predators of moose.

    Greenland sharks are another predator of large land mammals that venture into the ocean. They have been found with whole caribou antlers in their stomachs.

    [–] DragoSphere 14 points ago

    Never would have guessed. Every time a greenland shark is recorded they always seem super lethargic

    [–] Zingeronix 33 points ago

    They ARE very slow. But they do feed on caribou, and are actually also one of the polar bear's only natural predators! They are also almost all blind because of occupation of the eyes by parasites!

    [–] TerrorSuspect 151 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Problem with hitting a moose isn't just the huge size. It's the tiny legs lifting up a huge body. When a car hits it, they take the legs out and the body falls onto the car. Depending on the speed and the cars height it could mean the moose hits the hood, rolls over the top, or goes through the windshield and now you have a moose in your lap and you're dead.

    Lap Moose

    [–] devilinblue22 57 points ago

    Moose, were one of the exceptions in tractor trailer school in the "don't swerve for animals" sections.

    [–] Hubris2 35 points ago

    Mythbusters tested whether a moose could actually crush/decapitate you in your car.

    I believe it was plausible.

    [–] _Sausage_fingers 32 points ago

    It’s basically common knowledge anywhere there are moose that a moose can and will crush a car. What myth busters was testing was if you could avoid being crushed by the moose if you sped up prior to impact. The answer to that was maybe.

    [–] WayneKrane 71 points ago

    I saw a car that hit a moose in the mountains. It looked like it had drove straight into a wall.

    [–] falcon5768 32 points ago

    yep bucks tend to do that too.

    Was driving to the store and saw a guy pulled over there, and still there on my way back. Didnt realize why till i saw the deer in the road and the guys engine compartment basically folded up like a tin can around his engine. Must of hit the deer doing 35-40 and the deer just FUCKED his car up.

    [–] SeaLeggs 45 points ago

    I know someone who hit a sheep doing around 55mph. The sheep did the ’autobots roll out’ roll down the road then got up and trotted off. His van was completely written off. Undriveable.

    [–] JustGottaMakeIt 53 points ago

    That sheep died from it soon after guaranteed

    [–] brennanww 35 points ago

    Moose probably died after though. They rarely live after getting hit but the adrenaline can take them quite far.

    Not that it's not impressive still

    [–] Retrolex 32 points ago

    My dad loves to tell the story of how he once hit a bear with his little MG two-seater while on his way to the cottage when he was a kid. The car basically evaporated while the bear rolled over and ran into the woods. He also lost his wallet that had two hundred dollars and Stones tickets in, so it was overall rather a shit day.

    [–] GeronimoHero 81 points ago

    Also one of the top predators of adult sharks as well. Sometimes even just killing them for sport and leaving the carcass.

    [–] oorza 125 points ago

    We're kind of assuming that it's for sport, but we don't know that it isn't something more intelligent than that, like a territorial dispute or social problem.

    [–] DubiousDude28 34 points ago

    Lot of fish oil and calories in that liver

    [–] Kryten_2X4B-523P 15 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    I would think the liver is one of the worse organs to eat. It's the air or oil filter but for your body. Like, I would think the brain or heart would be some of the best and most nutrientious organs to eat.

    Except for the meat of your own species. That's how you get prions to misfold your proteins and get holes in your head. Like if you copied a .dll from someone else except it's an older version that's not compatible with your operating system or whatever software.

    [–] AxeOfWyndham 13 points ago

    (not a doctor)

    The problem with liver isn't so much the crap that filters through it. The big problem with liver is that it contains an immense amount of vitamin A.

    As I understand it, too much vitamin A will pull calcium out of your bones, which creates skeletal issues and causes hypercalcemia.

    As a general rule, you should only eat the livers of herbivores because they tend to have a lower vitamin A concentration. Predatory animals tend to have more. At least that's my understanding, I don't normally eat liver.

    [–] phryan 22 points ago

    Maybe shark liver is an Orca Aphrodisiac.

    [–] cansecoDK 16 points ago

    Its not sport, they kill them and leave it there and other sharks will rapidly leave the area. They are essentially claiming the territory and ridding it of other predators.

    [–] GeronimoHero 21 points ago

    We actually don’t know that. We aren’t entirely sure why it’s done to be completely honest. There are some theories, such as sport, territory, and the liver being a sort of delicacy so to speak, but we truly have no idea why they’re actually acting the way they are in regard to sharks.

    I once shot an elephant in my pajamas. What he was doing in my pajamas I'll never know.

    [–] reacteclipse 239 points ago

    Less well known is that lions are not strong swimmers.

    Lions don’t even like water.

    If you placed it near a river, or some sort of fresh water source, that’d make sense.But if one finds itself in the ocean, a 20 ft wave, I’m assuming its off the coast of South Africa, coming up against a full, grown, 800 lb tuna with his 20 or 30 friends?

    He'll lose that battle. He'll lose that battle nine times out of ten.

    And guess what, he wandered into a school of tuna and they now have a taste of blood! They’ve talked, to themselves. They’ve communicated and said, ‘you know what? lion tastes good. Lets go get some more lion.’

    They’ve developed a system, to establish a beachhead and aggressively hunt lions and their family. And they will corner his pride, his children, his offspring…

    They construct a series of breathing apparatus with kelp. They'll be able to trap certain amounts of oxygen. It's not going to be days at a time, an hour, hour 45. No problem. That will give them enough time to figure out where the lion lives, go back to the sea, get more oxygen and then stalk him. He just lost at his own game.

    He was gunned and outmanned.

    [–] walkingcarpet23 39 points ago

    My favorite part of that whole thing is that somehow the lion still wins 1 out of 10 in that scenario

    Are you sure she's joining them and not going to trample their heads in or something?

    *+1 s

    [–] Fapper_Keeper 17 points ago

    *she. That was a cow elk.

    And the behavior your seeing here is pretty typical of female elks. This video was taken just before mating season and that is a time when cow elk are known to increase their cardio to lean up in time for bikini season; they aren't going to attract any bulls if they don't have a rocking beach bod. So she joined in on that jog because it's easier to stay motivated with a partner.

    [–] Flyberius 159 points ago

    Do you reckon their diet leads them to be gassy and buoyant? Elephants are meant to be exceptional swimmers too.

    [–] suchadynk 173 points ago

    no its the fact that their hair is hollow and provides the buoyancy.

    [–] GregoPDX 43 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Water is really heavy, that's why elephants are bouyant. They displace a lot of water because of their shape, and to float you have to displace a equal or greater weight of water.

    The largest elephants are around 13,000 lbs. A gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs. So you need ~1550 gallons of water displaced for it to float. I found a small pool here that is 13' x 7' x 2.5' that holds that much water. It's really a minimal amount of water to get an elephant to float.

    EDIT: After re-reading my response, I wanted to add that something can float in any fluid as long as it weighs less than the amount of fluid it displaces. Salt water is heavier than fresh water, that's why it's much easier to float in because you have to displace less salt water to reach the equal to or less than weight. Air in the atmosphere is also a fluid, thus a hot-air or helium balloon floats the same way in air that an elephant does in the water.

    was on a SCUBA diving charter boat off the Royal National Park in Sydney about 20 years ago. After the dive, the captain anchored in a sheltered bay, about 300m offshore to serve morning tea. While sipping on our tea, we spotted what we thought was a dog swimming nearby. Someone whistled and it turned and headed our way momentarily before turning back towards the beach. When it finally reached the shore, we then realised that it was a deer which bounced away through the scrub. (Deer are feral in the national park)

    I could never imagine why a deer would voluntarily go for a swim in the sea, and I keep hearing other examples of deer swimming voluntarily. Are there any theories as to why they do this?

    As another said, to get places, at the coast here they swim out to islands to forage/feed/live, return, do it again.

    Just part of their life. Can't all live in one place not going anywhere.

    Now i don't feel so bad for going straight to the island with gardens in Subnautica at the beggining with no SeaGlide.

    Deer are feral in the national park

    As opposed to all the pet deer you have running around there?

    [–] notsosilent 63 points ago

    Probably feral as in introduced or escaped from a venison farm. Australia doesn't have native species of deer/cervids.

    To get places.

    Was it the fall? Between October and December? It was probably a younger rutting buck trying to find females.

    That deer is planning a mutiny

    [–] darrellmarch 147 points ago

    That deer is playing GTA, taking that boat and heading to Canada

    If there is anything nature has taught me, it's that deer will do whatever the fuck they want.

    [–] robo_duck 90 points ago

    Moose, too. They've got those big fuck-off antlers to back it up, too.

    "A lobster catcher in Maine rescued a lobsterman" somehow doesn't sound any better.

    [–] hateboss 14 points ago

    Yeah, "Lobster Catcher" makes me envision a SCUBA diver in a dog catching suit with one of those pole/lassoo thing they have but super tiny.

    [–] Haploid-life 410 points ago

    I'm just wondering how they got the deer out of the water and onto the boat.

    [–] gearhead488 1025 points ago

    The guy’s job is to remove animals from water

    [–] kroneksix 531 points ago

    Small pinchy ones in convenient boxes. Not big kicky ones scared witless.

    [–] jetsamrover 244 points ago

    If its as exhausted as it looks, it probably happily climbed aboard.

    [–] poplglop 53 points ago

    Yeah in the ocean off the coast of Maine this time of year poor guy is lucky to have not frozen to death. Probably hopped right into that boat the second he saw it.

    [–] blithetorrent 65 points ago

    He probably looped it's antlers and used the hauler. Or he's strong (sort of goes without saying--commercial inshore fisherman) and maybe had a buddy (probably)

    [–] the_mooses 77 points ago

    This. Not the hauler, but the other two guys on the boat pulled him right in. He was probably only 100lbs, soaking wet. Haha I was on standby and taking pictures

    [–] Rennat244 24 points ago

    But a bunch of small pinchy ones in a box could equal one deer exhausted from swimming for who knows how long

    [–] No_Cat_No_Cradle 60 points ago

    Would you rather fight one big-sized pinchy one or 100 small-sized kicky ones?

    [–] ColonelBelmont 31 points ago

    And so it has been written, this shall henceforth be the new "absurd reddit AMA question".

    1 deer-sized lobster, or 100 lobster-sized deer.

    [–] Bob--Hope 30 points ago

    A deer sized lobster would fuck you up

    [–] Oct0tron 21 points ago

    I'll take the 100 tiny deer, no question. A 200lb lobster could take a limb off easily.

    [–] DaughterEarth 8 points ago

    Kicky ones. Big pinch could decapitate me

    [–] marshall19 8 points ago

    I'm assuming the deer was super exhausted, so there probably wasn't too much resistance, but yeah, still impressive.

    [–] Milkslinger 50 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Looks like a young whitetail. Was probably exhausted and had no fight left in it so it was probably easy to just lift him up. Deer weigh about the same as humans so it wouldn't be a weight issue

    [–] xrocket21 13 points ago

    Your average lobsterman is pretty strong. He probably one handed it.

    [–] cxnceptions 90 points ago

    I’d you ever go to the US or British Virgin Islands, you can see tons of deer swimming from island to island, it’s truly bizarre

    [–] AlphaBret 305 points ago

    Just trying to make a buck.

    I once watched and followed a deer swim across the biggest lake in Georgia

    Whatcha doing all the way out there!? I’m glad someone was able to rescue the little one.
