An aggressive deer accused of a predecessor in Oklahoma forces him to wrestle away the buck's antlers.
In a video on Facebook the deer is seen several times while walking on Travis Hurst, while he tries to hold the head of a buck to avoid his sharp antlers.
Hurst, a predecessor in Shawnee, Oklahoma, worked on a church fire when the deer emerged from the forest.

& # 39; He has gotten the best of me, & # 39; said Travis Hurst to Fox 4. I think he had some human contact because he was not afraid of us at all.
Hurst and the deer walked away from the meeting although the deer got some good hits, Hurst wrote on Facebook.
& # 39; So I was literally attacked by a deer! It lasted much longer than the recording.
& # 39; Every time I let him go, he would sue me. When I got home I found two puncture wounds on my legs! I am almost certain that he has won. It's all right, "Hurst wrote on Facebook.
The video shows Hurst retreating from the deer and says: & # 39; Take it easy! & # 39; before the deer lowers his head and lights him with his antler.
Why does he fight against us? & # 39; Hurst calls, trying to keep the animal and the antlers outside his body.

"We're probably in his area," said another man. Hurst still struggles with the deer. & # 39; I do not want to let him go, & # 39; he said before the deer again charges him.
Another video shows the animal that calms and runs away in the forest.
I can not believe it, man, he attacked me, & # 39; Hurst says as he looks at his injuries, a few wounds on his legs and hands.
Captain Wade Farrar, at the Department of Wildlife in Oklahoma, said that the deer were probably hand-raised by someone he is not afraid of.
Farrar says that deer are now in the rut, which means they are frisky and ready to fight.

Hurst claimed that after the incident he was in order, adding that the man got the upper hand from me & # 39;
He will try to behave like a big bad deer and if he thinks we are a threat, he will treat us just like he would in the forest, & # 39; said Farrar.
He said that when you run into deer or animals, you leave it alone.
& # 39; Never a good idea, & # 39; said Farrar. It is best to contact us and let us do it. & # 39;
Hurst claimed that he had learned a few lessons from this experience and never hopes to be in this dangerous position again.
& # 39; He does not pose a threat to him. I can keep my hands down and I think he will sue me through this.
