Animals have more sense than a majority of U.S. voters.
Remember this pic from 2008?
Jason Howerton reports for The Blaze, Sept. 21, 2012, that for ten days in a row, a deer repeatedly attacked Tom and Beth Priem’s Obama yard sign although he spared other yard signs in the Priems’ Austin, Texas neighborhood.
Tom Priem, a software support engineer, and his wife, Beth, were sick and tired of constantly finding the Obama sign in front of their home destroyed. They were certain it was a mischievous Republican who didn’t like Obama. Tom even called a city hotline to report the incident in case it turned out to be a dangerous offender.
“The sign had holes poked in it like somebody had stuck a knife through it,” Tom Priem told Fox News. “At first I thought it was somebody who didn’t like Obama.”
So imagine the Texas couple’s surprise when they discovered the anti-Obama, sign destroyer was a buck. Beth Priem was able to snap the following photo just moments after the sign was trashed (notice the crumpled Obama sign on the bottom right):
The Priems were mystified by why the buck singled out their sign particularly, as other people on the street had signs up that went untouched.
Tom Priem speculated, “People across the street have signs and their signs have not been attacked…It’s just a weird thing. Maybe they don’t like something in the front yard where they graze. It’s just a weird thing. We were making fun of it, saying the deer must be a Republican.”
Actually, I have on good authority that this highly-intelligent noble buck is an independent-minded conservative. 😉
