Wounded deer kicks, kills hunter

A managed deer hunt in a Fort Wayne, Ind., park turned tragic when a wounded deer apparently kicked a hunter trying to finish it off with a knife.

Authorities found Paul J. Smith, 62, of Fort Wayne, unconscious and seated against a tree. Smith died shortly afterward, despite attempts to revive him.

The complete story is here, in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.
