ATLANTA (AP) - An unexpected attacker has been after dogs in a Georgia city.
Carolyn Taylor and her boyfriend were walking their two dogs July 3 in Peachtree City when a deer approached them. The doe was unbothered by the dogs, even approaching them to check them out.
Taylor said the doe "stared them down." Then it charged, ultimately stomping one of her dogs. The dog was OK but the encounter left them rattled.
Another dog wasn't so lucky. Hunter Wood told WGCL-TV that an aggressive doe injured his dog to the point she had to be euthanized.
Tina Johannsen with the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division says does can be aggressive when their fawns are nearby.
