HOWELL, N.J.-- A New Jersey woman fended off an attack from an angry deer seeking revenge after she hit the animal with her car.
Howell police Patrolman Nicholas Austin captured dash cam footage of the encounter between driver Ellen Sager and the angry deer who crossed the road and attempted to enter her vehicle, according to New Jersey.com.
"It was mad, real mad," Sager said. "It happened so fast. I just grabbed a handful of antlers and tried to keep it from killing me."
The deer managed to pry Sager's door open, ultimately forcing her to kick the wounded animal down to the ground.
Sager suffered a minor knee injury from the scuffle and police said the deer eventually died due to injuries sustained from the crash.
