When you're out on your lunch break, you just never know what you're going to see or hear. That said, are you ever prepared to see a man on a bike carrying a deer... a dead deer?
That happened to Candice Counts, and she captured photos of it. Counts told WFMY News 2 over the phone she saw the man, who was riding a bike, stop and look at the deer. Shortly after, he picked it up, threw it over his shoulder and rode off on his bike.
PHOTOS: Man On a Bike Carrying a Dead Deer, Oh My!
Counts said she quickly pulled into a gas station parking lot and snapped photos. She said from her understanding, the deer had been hit by a car earlier that morning. She took the pictures at about 1:15 p.m.
Candice said her first thought after seeing him ride off with the deer was 'bless him.'
Candice Counts posted this caption with the photos on her Facebook page: "I can't make this stuff up..I swear! Never in my life have I ever seen a man, on a bike....riding down the middle of the road with a dead deer....until now."
