Deer attacks couple before trooper wrestles it away

Pennsylvania Game Commission officials are investigating the apparently unprovoked attack by a male white-tailed deer on two residents this morning in Clintondale, Clinton County.

According to a commission news release, the incident on Fishing Creek Road began when a woman attempted to go into her backyard to feed cats, and a buck that was standing at her back door would not let her out of the house. Alerted to the situation, a man left the house to attempt to chase the deer away and, "without warning, the buck repeatedly charged and gored him."

The woman contacted the State Police Lamar barracks at 7:40 a.m., and Cpl. Todd A. Brian and Tpr. Stephen E. Wilcox found the deer attacking the woman, who was trying to chase the deer away from the man. Unable to get a clean shot at the deer, Cpl. Brian grabbed the deer by its antlers and wrestled it away from the woman, and then both officers fired shots to put it down.

A commission worker took the carcass away. Although the buck appeared healthy, if will be checked for rabies and other diseases.

Commission employee Kenneth Packard noted that deer are in the midst of the rut, which is the fall mating season, and for whatever reason, the buck chose to spar with these people. "That is not behavior normally associated with wild deer, as they almost invariably keep their distance from people," the news release said.

"There is no doubt in my mind that the immediate response and action of Cpl. Brian and Tpr. Wilcox saved the lives of the two victims," said Game Commission Northcentral Region Law Enforcement Supervisor Warren "Quig" Stump.
