My friendís dog had an encounter with a deer the day before while walking in a nearby forest. The dog is only about 35 pounds, quite small, so how he managed to get into an argument with a deer remains a mystery. But the fact remains that the deer gored the little dog with his antlers, and then escorted him and his owner from the forest. Fortunately, no vital organs were harmed, but we have to be vigilant to make sure he leaves the wound alone while it heals, which goes against all his instincts. Nature can certainly be hazardous!
