Following reports that deer had impaled themselves on the fence surrounding the course, Muirfield Village Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio, is making changes.
"Nearby residents opposed the idea of a barrier and complained after one deer that apparently tried to jump the fence was impaled and another was found with broken legs and had to be put down," reported the Associated Press. "The club says it will add bars atop the fence to cover the pointy finials."
The Jack Nicklaus-designed course will host the Presidents Cup in October, and while the club insists the fence will be removed after the tournament, residents worry the structure could become permanent. (Photo: Chris Condon / Getty Images)
