A bird watcher and photographer who inched as close as 8 feet to a bedded mule deer buck near McNary Dam on the Oregon side of the Columbia River on Thursday learned a painful lesson about wildlife comfort zones. The buck leapt up, charged Neal Hinds, and gored him in the leg, landing him on his back–and in the local hospital. Tri-City Herald.
