The Province - - NEWS -

BERNE, N.Y. — Au­thor­i­ties say two men hunt­ing il­le­gally in a ru­ral up­state New York town got a big sur­prise when the deer they had just shot jumped out of the back of their pickup truck.

Al­bany County sher­iff’s deputies re­sponded Thanks­giv­ing night to a re­port of some­one shoot­ing a ri­fle from a pickup in Berne.

Of­fi­cials say the pas­sen­ger said he had shot a buck that had run in front of the truck.

The men loaded the deer into the truck bed and drove off, but the deer jumped out.

The deer was lo­cated soon af­ter and put down.
