WNEM TV5 reporter Gino Vicci was on hand for an incredible sight on Friday morning.

Royal Oak police say it appears a deer tried to jump the fence of the Oakview Cemetery in Royal Oak, MI, but impaled itself in the process.

The deer was discovered dead early Friday morning by someone working at the cemetery.

It's believed the deer was an eight-point buck and appeared to have been trying to clear the gate when part of its hind quarters caught on a spike. 

When asked, Officer Pelletier with the Royal Oak Police Department, agreed this is one of the more bizarre calls that have come in to the department recently.

As evident from the photos, police used a backhoe to remove the animal from the gate spike.
