Is this news?

I have a love-hate relationship with this story. Some might say it is sort of light-hearted, and a welcome break from scandal, war, and the economy. Not me. I've been more cynical about it. Maybe because I've seen all too much of it - this picture/link comes from NATIONAL news! Why are people interested in this? ARE people interested in this? Is it a point-and-laugh situation ("look at the silly deer")? Is it commentary on the impact humans have on animals?
What will happen to the deer now that it's free from it's plastic restraint? Well, it's hunting season...fortunately for the deer, it is now thin and unappealing as a catch.
