Deer gores hunter near New Castle

It's unclear whether or not the area where the injury occurred was in an
area where public hunting is legal

NEW CASTLE - Bambi strikes back.

While the idea might cause a giggle or two, it became a serious reality for
a member of a hunting party near New Castle Thursday after a deer gored a
man in the leg, said Randy Hampton, spokesman for the Colorado Division of

Division of Wildlife officers responding to the report found the injured man
at his home. He had already been treated and released at the hospital for
his injuries, Hampton reported, but that an investigation is continuing that
could lead to a citation.

"As we looked into the injury, we found other issues we are now
investigating," Hampton said. "Because there is an ongoing investigation, we
cannot comment further."

The deer was on the ground when it gored the man, Hampton added.

It's unclear whether or not the area where the injury occurred was in an
area where public hunting is legal.
