Mass. man survives deer ‘head-butt’ car attack

The Associated Press

MENDON, Mass. — A Massachusetts man is recovering from a broken nose and stitches to the face after a deer crashed through his car and head-butted him.

Jesse Mazzola says he was driving along a Mendon country road after a cookout this week when a deer came running through his open driver’s side window.

Mazzola said he was “eye to eye with a deer” when the deer head-butted him. After the deer bounced off his face, Mazzola said he heard what he thought its neck break as the deer went over the hood.

His wife and 1year-old daughter were the backseat but were uninjured. His wife later called 911 and Mazzola was transported to a nearby hospital.

Police found a dead deer in the area of the attack a day later.
