It’s not often a deer get its revenge.
The 72-year-old man was transported by ambulance to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac, according to Fond du Lac Sheriff’s Officer Jeff Bonack. The ambulance call came in around 7:30 p.m. The man’s condition is unknown.
The man was out bow hunting earlier with a crossbow on the Peebles Trail near Highway K in the town of Taycheedah. He wounded the doe with an arrow and went back out later to track the animal, Bonack said.
“Apparently the man was going through some thick brush and the deer leaped out and went after him,” Bonack said. “The doe struck him in the leg with her head.”
The injured hunter was transported by Mount Calvary Ambulance.
Bonack said the 72-year old had been out hunting with other family members.
“I’m guessing the deer got away,” Bonack said.
