Man hunts deer. Deer gets revenge.
A female deer in Wisconsin got some sweet payback as she attacked a 72-year-old man who had wounded her with a crossbow, according to Action Reporter Media in Fond du Lac, Wis.
Fond du Lac Sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Bonack told the newspaper that the man — who was not identified — shot the doe with his crossbow Friday and returned later that evening to track down the animal.
That’s when the doe struck back.
“Apparently, the man was going through some thick brush and the deer leaped out and went after him,” Bonack told the paper. “The doe struck him in the leg with her head.”
“We have more white-tailed deer now than we have ever had in the history of the country,” Todd Smith, editor in chief of Outdoor Life, told ABC News at the time. “So it’s not surprising we’re having more encounters. When deer and people meet, stuff’s going to happen.”
Then there’s Lynn Chestnut and his viral video of his fight with a male buck. He had wanted to make an impressive hunting video for his friends, so he doused himself with female deer urine so he could attract a buck.
Here’s that footage:
