NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA – a deer farmer was killed by an animal in his herd.
The 55-year-old man was found with multiple wounds Sunday evening inside his enclosed field in Saint-Léonard, near the Quebec border.
The victim’s wife phoned police Sunday afternoon after he went out to feed the deer and never returned, RCMP Sgt. Marc Violette said.
Officers discovered the man’s body in the field at about 8 p.m. Sunday. His body had numerous piercings that appear to have been caused by deer antlers, Violette said.
Deer have the capacity to inflict severe damage, he said.
“They would do this to small prey in the wild. They would do it, maybe, to small foxes or to small coyotes that were attacking them,” Violette said.
Here’s another deer attack. This time it was provoked by the hunter, but still check it out:
