It was captured by a night-cam.

Rare video of deer shedding antlers

As the shedding of antlers is such a private affair, the video of the deer shedding its antlers has garnered a lot of attention. Usually, deer shed their antlers in complete privacy in amidst large groups or generally away from humans. The video begins with a deer on the screen which is seen scratching its head. The deer suddenly shakes its head violently and the antlers can be seen falling off. After that, the deer exits the frame and we can just see a tiny glimpse of the antlers as they fall on the ground.
