CRALEY, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a woman has been fatally attacked by a deer kept on family land in central Pennsylvania.

York County's deputy coroner says the 30-year-old victim died Friday of injuries she suffered after entering the animal's pen in Lower Windsor Township.

The woman's father calls her death a tragic accident. Stan Shaffer says the deer was in rut, making the animal very unpredictable.

The Lower Windsor police chief declined to comment at the scene.

    It takes a special kind of stupid to keep a wild animal penned in on your property.
