Well, this is an odd one. Video has surfaced online of a young, 6-point buck "attacking" a New Jersey motorist just moments after being struck by her SUV.
The footage, captured by the dashboard camera of a police officer, appears to show a GMC Envoy coming to a stop on the highway near Howell, N.J., earlier this week, after striking a deer. As the police officer slows to a stop to render assistance, his camera captured the buck returning to the scene of the accident, where it proceeded to slam into the motorist, who had opened her door to exit the vehicle. After a scuffle, the driver of the Envoy was able to fend the confused and wounded deer off.
She sustained only a minor near injury, according to USA Today. Unfortunately, the buck died from its injuries at the scene. There was obviously no "attack," so to speak—the deer had been wounded fatally and was completely out of sorts. It likely had no idea what it was doing.
