Man arrested after video shows him riding a mule deer

An Oregon man was arrested after a video surfaced on social media showing him riding a mule deer buck

The video showed a “ young adult male climbing onto, and eventually riding on the back of a live and exhausted mule deer buck while it was contained within a fenced enclosure.” police said.

This was a wild buck that had become trapped in an enclosure. In the video, you can hear the deer grunting and bleating as it tries to escape. The deer made many attempts to get out of the encloser and away from the man riding it. The police were able to identify the man with the help of social media.

18-year-old Jacob Belcher was put in Harney County Jail on the wildlife harassment and animal abuse charges.  The person accused of filming has not been charged as of this time, but police are still investigating.
