MENTOR-ON-THE-LAKE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio woman says she feels like a “prisoner” because a deer has been attacking her near her home.

Cindy Frost says she’s called police about the doe and asked for assistance in walking her dogs near her suburban Cleveland home.

Frost says the deer charged her last week while she was taking her dogs out. She says she had to fight the doe off with a dog leash and her fist, and tried to zigzag back and forth. Frost says the deer slipped on the black top allowing her to safely return inside. She says the deer then circled her home.

Frost says the doe’s fawn lives in her backyard.

State wildlife officials say her there’s not much they can do, and that such encounters are likely quite common.
