FOND DU LAC, Wis. — Authorities say a 72-year-old bow hunter was hurt in Fond du Lac County when he was attacked by the deer he had wounded with an arrow.

Fond du Lac County sheriff’s officer Jeff Bonack says the man was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

The man was bow hunting shortly before 7:30 p.m. Friday with a crossbow when he wounded the doe with an arrow and went to track the animal.

Bonack said the man apparently was going through thick brush when the doe leaped out and struck him in the leg with her head.

The man had been hunting with family members when the attack happened.
