CLARKSVILLE, Ga., Dec. 29 (UPI) -- A Georgia man said he knew just what to do when a wounded deer stumbled onto his property: He ran outside in boxers and flip-flops to kill it with a stick.

Joel Borden, whose friends gave him the nickname "Country" shortly after he moved to Clarksville from the considerably smaller town of Savannah, said the deer stumbled into his yard with a gunshot wound in its neck Saturday morning, Gannett Tennessee reported Tuesday.

"I killed it with a stick," Borden said. "My friends are making a big deal of it because I didn't have anything on but boxers and a pair of sandals."

He said he struck the animal repeatedly in the head, breaking off one of its antlers, before it lost consciousness and he used the stick to cut its throat.

Dale Grandstaff, an officer with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, said the agency recommends people either put wounded deer out of their misery or call authorities to deal with the situation.
