Now here's something that doesn't happen every day.... http://www.fresnobee.com/oddnews/story/1634604.html Deputy, trooper stun elk to free it from fence Published online on Friday, Sep. 11, 2009 The Associated Press HARRISBURG, Ore. -- Normally, if you're close enough to use a stun gun on a bull elk, you might be too close. But it worked out well for a Linn County sheriff's deputy and an Oregon State Police trooper faced with a dilemma. They responded Thursday to a call near Harrisburg about a big elk whose antlers had become entangled in a barbed wire fence, pinning its head in place. They contacted the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for advice and all parties agreed it would take too long for a wildlife agent to respond and tranquilize the animal. So the two devised their own plan: the deputy used a Taser stun gun on the elk for about 25 seconds while the trooper cut it free. According to a sheriff's office statement, the animal then ran off without any sign of ill effects.
