Deer With Arrow in Head, Nicknamed 'Steve Martin' Rescued & Saved: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A deer photographed running wild with an arrow in its head for more than a week has been caught and treated after its startling sightings in a New Jersey woman`s backyard made international news.


The young buck, nicknamed `Steve Martin` after the comedian`s similar headpiece, was tranquilized and released Saturday evening by officials with the New Jersey Fish and Wildlife, capping a nine-day stakeout for its rescue."

Kudos to the homeowner, Susan Darrah, for publicizing the plight of this poor deer, and demanding that the animal be rescued and treated.

Steve Martin wearing an arrow headpiece may be funny, but it`s never funny to witness an animal suffer.

Kudos to the wildlife officials who were able to successfully remove the arrow.

The deer was released into the wild, with his luck he will probably soon be shot dead by a hunter.
