Wounded deer attacks hunter who shot him

And good for him, too. Serves the hunter right. (And don't have at me about deer overpopulation and all the rest of it. If we didn't kill off the wolves and the coyotes, we wouldn't have this problem.)

Forty-nine-year-old Randy Goodman said he thought two well-placed shots with his .270-caliber rifle had killed the buck on Nov. 19. Goodman said the deer looked dead to him, but seconds later the nine-point, 240-pound animal came to life.

The buck rose up, knocked Goodman down and attacked him with his antlers in what the veteran hunter called "15 seconds of hell." The deer ran a short distance and went down, and died after Goodman fired two more shots.

Soon Goodman started feeling dizzy and noticed his vest was soaked in blood.

So he reached his truck and drove to a hospital, where he received seven staples in his scalp and was treated for a slight concussion and bruises.

Okay. It was hell for you, Mr. Goodman. Ever thought of what it must have been like for the deer?
