This man deserves a statue in the town square. If there's no town square, buildings should be leveled to make one for his statue.

Man kills buck with bare hands in bedroom.

BENTONVILLE, Ark. - For 40 exhausting minutes, Wayne Goldsberry battled a buck with his bare hands in his daughter's bedroom.

When they say buck, they mean the deer kind, not the "young buck" trying-to-put-his-lips-on-the-daughter's-face kind.

Goldsberry finally subdued the five-point whitetail deer that crashed through a bedroom window at his daughter's home Friday. When it was over, blood splattered the walls and the deer lay dead on the bedroom floor, its neck broken.

Try not to visualize that scene. You might need a bottle or three of NyQuil to get to sleep at night.

Goldsberry was at his daughter's home when he heard glass breaking. He went back to check on the noise and found the deer.

He was actually kind of disappointed to find the animal. He was hoping for a guy with a 12-gauge. Those fights are more interesting.

"I was standing about like this peeking around the corner when the deer came out of the bedroom," said Goldsberry. The deer ran down the hall and into the master bedroom — "jumping back and forth across the bed."

Sounds like fun. Maybe they could have been friends if Goldsberry had accepted the deer’s invitation for bed-jumping fun.

Goldsberry, about 6-feet-1 and 200 pounds, entered the bedroom to confront the deer and, after a brief struggle, emerged to tell his wife to call police.

He also got a glass of lemonade. His wife offered the deer some cookies, but the buck declined.

After returning to the bedroom, the fight continued. Goldsberry finally was able to grip the animal and twist its neck, killing it.

"It's just like opening a jar of jelly," Goldsberry said, "except that the jar weighs as much as 350 pounds. And the cap has sharp, pointy horns. And instead of jam, the jar is filled with blood and the internal organs of a deer. But otherwise, it's the same."

Goldsberry, sore from the struggle, dragged the dead animal out of the house.

"He got kicked several times. He was walking bowlegged for a while," Deputy Doug Gay said.

"At this time of year, a buck that sees its reflection in a window often charges, believing it is fighting off a rival," Gay said.

Goldsberry had the deer butchered.

Killing it is the man's job. Any old pansy can butcher the thing.

"He's in the freezer," the man said before walking to the kitchen and showing off pounds of freshly wrapped venison.

Goldsberry then taunted the frozen meat, yelling, "How do you like that, sucka?!"

    People are crazy... just crazy. What would awake inside this guy to decide to wrestle it to death?

    Why wouldn't he, like, shoo it someplace safe and call animal control?

    I'm with James, but it was Arkansas after all. Maybe we should be glad some really unnatural idea didn't awake inside this guy.

    "He was actually kind of disappointed to find the animal. He was hoping for a guy with a 12-gauge. Those fights are more interesting." -- you are killing me.

    I wrestled a very small gecko to death once. Sometimes I don't know my own strengh.
