A 73-year-old woman in Colorado has been fined over a thousand dollars after her pet deer, whom she had been rasing illegally in her house, gored a neighbor who was walking her dog. Tynette Housley, 73, illegally took in a wild-day old fawn and nurtured it in her Black Forest home for an entire year near Colorado Springs. The deer was a young buck when it attacked Housley’s neighbor. The deer attacked Housley’s neighbor while she was taking a walk with her dog in the morning. The deer knocked her to the ground, thrashed its antlers, and gored her. The victim sustained cuts on her head, arms, and legs during the attack and she had to be hospitalized overnight. The case was brought in the knowledge of Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) who then investigated the case.

"The terrifying attack went on several minutes as the victim tried to run to a neighbor's house and then to her own home," CPW said in its statement about the incident. "Repeatedly the deer knocked her down and gored her. The deer even continued to attack as she frantically opened her garage door. It relented only when she ran between two cars in her garage."

The deer has since be euthanized and was taken to the laboratory for further investigation. It was tested for rabies and other diseases, but everything was declared clear. The animal, however, did have traces of off-season food in its stomach.

CPW cited Housley on misdemeanor charges of illegal possession of wildlife and illegally feeding wildlife, for which she was fined $1,098.50. She was also warned about possessing wildlife without a license.
