Deer attack mainly because of being surprised or feeling cornered. Sometimes it’s pure hormones, but it sounds like this buck had a pretty good size rack and was aggressive.
David Letterman applauds her bravery but humorously questions her judgment. He finishes with a story of his mild-mannered yellow labrador taking down an adult doe in his backyard.
Maggie Q ultimately learned that when you mess with a buck and you get the antlers. By the way, the deer nor the dog were not harmed during this ordeal. Maggie Q had some broken ribs and went to the ER but has a good attitude about it now.
