FLORISSANT, Colo. -- A 63-year-old woman trying to pet a male mule deer, or buck, was gored by it near Florissant on Monday, the Department of Wildlife said.

Joan Nutt was at her sister's home at 893 County Road 31, around 5 p.m., when the attack occurred. Nutt was transported to the Pikes Peak Regional Medical Center in Woodland Park where she was treated for large cuts caused by the buck's antlers and hooves.

We had a weird deer incident in the Detroit suburbs over the weekend. A deer crashed throught the window of a restaurant and ran through it. Poor thing. We can't shoot them in the city or burbs, though. The DNR has to handle it.

There was a story on the news last night about some kids playing catch with a football. When one kid missed and the ball when down hill the kid ran to get it and was attacked by a buck and tossed in to the air. It is mating season and the bucks are frisky.

I know a guy who had a pet deer. He was really sweet, when he shed his antlers. When they grew back, you better not get your ass in the pen.

"Wild animals are not pets, and do not experience feelings of 'friendliness' towards people," Deeney explained.

I've got no sympathy for this woman or her family. Clearly, they had fed the deer on more than one occasion or they wouldn't have had any expectation of petting it. They should have known that bucks lose their fear during the rut.

You want to pet Bambi? Buy a reindeer.
