English Grocery Store Offers Venison Special: Severed Deer Head At Checkout

You can encounter the weirdest stuff at the grocery store in the wee hours of the morning, but you probably haven’t seen anything weirder than what turned up in the self-checkout aisle of one of UK grocer Tesco’s stores at 1:30 in the morning: the severed head of a deer.

“But where was the rest of the deer?” is what you are probably not asking right now. Don’t worry: the internal organs were in one of the store’s aisles. Okay, but there’s more to an animal than that: where is the rest of the deer? The last we heard, authorities didn’t know. So that’s good.

Pop culture tells us what finding a horse’s head means: what does finding a deer’s head in the checkout lane mean?

Between this and the deer in Florida that required human intervention to save itself from its own snack attack and remove a Dorito bag from its head, it’s been a weird week for deer.
