The Walking Dead has convincingly put a tiger on television. They kill zombies week in and week out. The show literally bashed two skulls and made someone's eye popped out.
And it all looked pretty real.
On Sunday night, though, the AMC series brought a deer to television that was astoundingly computerized. Viewers got the point of the scene: Rick wanted to kill the deer because he owed one to his ex-girlfriend. However, they were left wondering how in the world such a poorly computerized deer made the cut of cable's top rated series.
Since Sunday night, the Internet has had a field day with the fake deer. On the following slides, we take a look at some of the best reactions to Say Yes' fake game.

Some fans just want to see The Walking Dead succeed.
As a result, they have taken to Twitter to share their personal work creating fake deer, just in case The Walking Dead might need a little bit of help with it in the future.

Even some of professional critics are chiming in on the fake deer fun.

Film students are getting in on the banter. Bearded Batman learned how to insert animals into scenes in his first round with Adobe's After Effects classes.
