In another rare wild animal “punching match” sighting, two deer got up on their hind legs to battle it out in what looks like a boxing match.

The unusual sight was captured by wildlife officers at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) in the US on Thursday 22 June. It shows the pair, identified as white-tailed bucks, hit each other with their front hooves, supposedly over food as they were both eating.

This peculiar form of fighting between wild animals comes soon after hyenas and wild dogs were caught throwing “a few punches” at each other at Kruger National Park.
