Family's pet deer shot by hunter

Isn't it rather hard to confuse a red deer with a whitetail?

Obviously this guy is not a true hunter or he would have known what kind of deer it was and he would have obeyed the No Tresspassing signs

Well a friend of mine was at work when a man showed up and said that he had just shot his first deer ever. So she looked out a window to see the man had a Calf straped to the roof of his car. He shoot a cow thinking it was a deer.

How does anyone mistake a cow for a deer?

At least cows are mammals. A few years back in Montana a young woman was killed while sleeping in her tent. The "hunters" who shot the yellow tent full of holes claimed they thought it was a bear.

Tent = Yellow, Triangular, Inanimate, lack of ears, eyes, legs, rump.

Bear = Black/Brown, Round, Moves, responds to sounds/smells.

You really, really, really have to try very, very, very hard to screw that up. eye roll

About 10 years ago. I got permision to hunt a new piece of property. The guy that gave me permision failed to mention that there was a deer farm (exotics) on the property next door.
I was sent down into the bottom to drive the deer to him. I got into the thicket and saw all the White tails flag, I "bulled" my way through the rest of it and leveled out the gun on the heard. I spoted antlers on one of them and got a good aim (then it clicked) those antlers are black! I didn't shoot but man it was close!
The deer herd ran right next to the penned in area on the other side of the hedgerow and right next to the herd of exotics inside.
