FLORENCE - A captive adult buck deer attacked and injured a woman on Dec. 11 at her home.
A Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks press release says the woman entered the pen and the white-tailed deer came after her.
The woman was treated at a Missoula hospital. A veterinarian euthanized the deer and the carcass will be inspected at the state wildlife lab.
The FWP press release notes that it is illegal to keep live game animals as pets.
