FOND du LAC, Wis. — A bow hunter in Wisconsin messed with the wrong deer.

The 72-year-old man was attacked by a deer he wounded with an arrow, the Fond du Lac Reporter said.

After injuring the doe, the man continued tracking her. After he emerged through a patch of thick brush, the deer jumped out and attacked the hunter.

“I’m guessing the deer got away,” Fond du Lack Sheriff’s Officer Jeff Bonack said.

The man, who was hunting with family members, was taken to a hospital. His condition is unknown.
