Here’s a really terrible headline that goes with a really nice story. Some hunters found a young buck trapped in a fence, so they freed it — and the New York Post considered that “unthinkable.”

Even the story doesn’t back up the headline:

When these hunters in Warrensburg, Missouri, encountered a young deer with its leg caught in a fence, they stepped in to save the animal. Although the duo often hunt deer, they believe in treating wild game with respect and kindness. “We are very ethical hunters — we would never kill a distressed, captured or trapped deer or any animal,” Buck Tranbarger explained. After being freed, the animal thanked the men with a sweet gesture of its own. It was seen on camera nuzzling up to one of the hunters, who was happy to comfort it with some relaxing petting.

How is that unthinkable?
