Because it was April Fool’s Day, nobody believed Carry McCook when he told them he got run over by a deer. Thankfully, there was a surveillance camera that recorded it and proved this was no joke.
McCook was being dropped off outside a hotel by a coworker in British Columbia, Canada, when it happened. He barely stepped out of the truck when he heard a “galloping sound” coming from his left, Global News reported. Before McCook knew it, he was being obliterated by a big deer as it ran by.
“As I was turning my brain couldn’t process what was coming at me and by the time I knew it, I had already gotten hit by ‘Bambi’ that was being chased by a dog.”
If you watch closely at the footage, you can see the dog run in front of the truck after the deer tramples McCook:
McCook, who is also a First Nations “rapper” and part of a group called Reka-NatioN from the sekani/Tahitan nation, said when he tried to tell his friends what happened, everyone assumed it was an April Fool’s joke.
So, he went to the hotel and got the video tape for proof. McCook posted the video on Facebook and it instantly went viral.
Other than a sore shoulder, McCook was not injured and finds the incident more hilarious every time he watches it.
