This buck went back to attack the driver who hit it!
We’ve seen a lot of wild car-deer collision videos here at Wide Open Spaces, but this is a new one for us.
This footage comes out of Howell, New Jersey. The driver of this GMC Envoy just struck a whitetail buck crossing the road. Fortunately enough, a police officer was driving just behind and caught what happened next on his dash cam. It’s a good thing too, because no one would have believed this story!
How on earth did this deer know exactly where to go to get at the person responsible for its injury? What a crazy video!
According to CBS, the driver, Ellen Sager, suffered a minor knee injury in the deer’s crazy attack. The buck wasn’t so lucky. It died from the injuries of the initial collision.
It never ceases to amaze me what even a fatally injured deer can do. Survival instinct is amazing, isn’t it?
