Here I am continuing the epic deeds of Heracles. After slaying the Hydra, Eurystheus was greatly angered that his half-brother still lived so he set him on a task that required catching that could outrun an arrow, the Ceryneian Hind (Deer), this golden antlered and brazen hooved deer was sacred to the Immortal Huntress, Artemis, so Eurystheus reasoned that even if Heracles some how was able to catch the deer, Artemis would smite him for the deed. And so Heracles went off to catch the Ceryneian Hind.
Damn it, I can't think of an Arnold catchphrase!
He began his journey in the Northern regions of Greece. Then after waking up from a power nap, he caught his eyes on something golden. It was the Hind, but it noticed the danger and began to run away. Heracles then did the most reasonable thing he could do, he chased it on FOOT and he CHASED a deer that was FASTER THAN AN ARROW IN FLIGHT for a FULL YEAR NONSTOP!
Aw Thank You Deviantart
The hunter and hunted ran through all of Greece, Thrace, Istria, and Hyperborea (Yes!) Finally Heracles caught up with the deer and began his trek back to Eurystheus, when he busted by Artemis and Apollo.
Look I know this looks bad, but lemme explain
He then told the goddess about his deeds and how he was doing it for penance. Artemis was persuaded by Heracles' story and told him that he could take the deer back to Eurystheus, but had to give it back to her. And so Heracles returned with the deer and much to the disgust of Heracles, Eurystheus wished to put it in his royal Menagerie (Sort of like a zoo). But Heracles would have none of it and released the deer right in front of Eurystheus and he was never able to have it for his shitty zoo.
To Hell With YOU! (YES!)
