BLACK FOREST, Colo. (KRDO) -- Colorado Parks and Wildlife says a 73-year-old woman who admitted to raising a wild buck has been cited with two misdemeanors after the animal attacked and gored a neighbor.
We reported the incident last Friday after the incident happened in Black Forest. CPW said Tynette Housley was charged for "illegal possession of wildlife and illegally feeding wildlife."
According to CPW, the victim reported that the deer was following her and then attacked as she walked her dog Friday morning. The victim said it knocked her down and thrashed her with its antlers before she was able to run away, but then it followed her to her own home, knocked her down and then gored her, continuing to attack as she tried to open the garage door. Eventually, the buck left when the victim ran between two cars in the garage.
A CPW wildlife officer found the buck with fresh blood covering its antlers.
Parks and Wildlife officials say Housley admitted to raising the buck after taking it in as a "days-old fawn." She reportedly raised it for more than a year.
The buck was euthanized and then taken to a lab to be tested for rabies and other diseases.
