KEYMAR, Md., Nov. 16—A deer attacked a man who was feeding the animals at a family-owned zoo today and gored him numerous times, the Frederick County sheriff's office said.
Bradley Gerwig, operator of the Deer Haven Mini Zoo, was feeding the animals when a buck attacked him, goring him in the stomach and chest and injuring his head. Gerwig was in an enclosed area when the animal attacked.
He was treated at a hospital and released, a family member said last night.
The zoo has about 20 deer, as well as bear, large cats and emu. The zoo is licensed by the Maryland Department of Agriculture.
