    Man attacked by deer

    UMATILLA, ORG.—A man was attacked by a mule buck deer Thursday near McNary Dam in Oregon.

    Oregon State Police say the victim was hiking with his wife when he stopped to take a photograph of the deer. He got too close and the buck gouged his lower legs. He was taken to Shepherds Medical Center.

    A Wildlife Biologist says it is mating season for deer, which makes late October and November the worst time to get close.

    "During that time buck mule deer become aggressive. That likely played a significant role in the events that occurred yesterday," says Mark Kirsch, Wildlife Biologist.

    Kirsch says the area is still safe. Deer won't attack unless they feel threatened. That means stay 30 feet or more away.

    "These mule deer are use to seeing people. They are somewhat habituated to people so an aggressive response as apposed to a flight response is going to be more common," says Kirsch.

    KNDU is told a hiker has never been attacked near the McNary Dam before.

    Now the Oregon State Police and Fish and Wildlife are searching for the buck. Once found, the deer will be euthanized and tested for disease.

    I wonder if he got any "action" shots for his photo album?

    Hopefully he learned his lesson...

    I wonder if the guy actually got a pic of the deer for the officials to be able to identify the suspect and have a mugshot.

    he obviously didn't show enough respect for the deer's diversity and was penalized for his intolerance.

    To protect the public ODFW has now suspended all hunts in the area...

    Would you really be surprised if they did that?

    Several years ago in late October I was fly fishing on the Deschutes around Maupin. That night around 8:00 I was taking a walk outside of the motel where I was staying and didn't notice a herd of deer, one buck and 3-4 does, munching on some apples under a little tree. I stopped and the buck looked up at me and started shaking his antlers and doing the stiff legged walk towards me. I was packing, but I just backed up slowly and he went back to munching apples. Got my blood pumping for a little bit. :laugh:

    The buck prolly thought the hippy hiker chick was hot and decided to fight the unarmed animal lover over her. It is mating season after all ;)
