Deer hops around, and then its antler just falls off

He just runs away like it's no big deal.

There’s nothing more embarrassing than when you’re walking down the street and your pants split wide open. And the deer equivalent of that is probably when the majestic mammal just up and loses an antler.

In a wild GIF posted to Imgur, one lucky spectator caught a buck losing one side of its helm of horns. But instead of caring at all, it just trots away.

Don’t fret, because apparently this is an annual occurrence and the deer don’t feel any discomfort. Phew.  

And you can even watch the video in its entirety.

Oh deer. Let’s hope the antler that grows in its place is stronger than ever.
