Deer Saves Woman, Chases Attacker Away

After killing a deer, it’s customary to give thanks for this animal that gave its life to feed us. Who knows, maybe they’ll repay the gratitude.

That’s the only explanation we can come up with as to why a deer would dart toward someone attacking a woman, essentially rescuing her from a robbery, or worse.

According to The Cincinnati Enquirer, a woman had just left a party when a man attacked her from behind, choking with her own purse and punching her in the forehead in Oxford, Ohio, when a deer ran out from the brush, scaring the attacker, who ran away with none of the woman’s property.

“The deer jumped up and ran…and so did he,” said police Sgt. Jon Varley, adding that in 17 years on the force, he’d never heard a story quite like that.

Varley said he believes the deer was sleeping in the brush when the commotion stirred it awake, causing it to bound from the bushes and heroically save the victim, who suffered some red marks on her face and some bruising, but was otherwise fine.

    Everyone should be greatful the deer wasn't in the rut; antlers are formidable wepons. If they fought over her I'll take the deer over a dirt dag who attackes a women.

    Even in a time of the year when they are not in the rut, a "dirt bag" like this guy would not stand much of a chance against a spooked deer. Scum like that are predators that feed on the fright of helpless women, that could probably beat his @$$ if they had a fair chance. It would not surprise me to hear that this guy crapped his pants.
