Man uses shovel to battle break-in buck
An Ithaca, NY man used a shovel to defend himself from a young whitetail buck that crashed into his home workshop Wednesday morning, finally killing it with a blow to the head after several minutes. “I went in thinking it would be like shooing a rabbit away,” said Tom Hartshorne. “But the next thing I know, I am in the battle of my life. I was just defending myself. It was either me or the deer.” Ithaca Star-Gazette.
