Buck Swims the Eel But Afterwards Can’t Seem to Get His Land Legs

On January 2, this handsome buck swam the Eel River by the Benbow bridge.

By the time he gets to the far side, he looks a bit dazed. His back legs don’t seem to be doing what he wants and he falls down. Those land legs are a bit hard to find after this antlered mariner’s trip in the slightly swollen Eel River.

He clumsily bumbles around before finally reaching the treeline. We hope his land legs came back soon after.
