Nov. 27 (UPI) -- A Rhode Island man captured video of the unusual traffic hazard that held up cars on a recent evening -- two bucks fighting in the road.

Tom Clarkin posted a video to Facebook showing the two deer locking antlers in the middle of Larchwood Drive in Warwick, blocking cars in both directions.

Clarkin said the video was filmed Wednesday evening while he was driving with his son.

"Dad, I would not mess with them," Clarkin's son says in the video. "They're about to, like, murder each other."

The deer eventually dash out of the road after more than two minutes of fighting.
