FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a 72-year-old bow hunter was hurt in Fond du Lac County where 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. Action Reporter Media (https://fondul.ac/14ahIXH ) reports his condition is unknown.

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 tracking the animal.

Bonack says apparently the man 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.
