DOVER, Tenn. (AP) -- A Middle Tennessee man is hospitalized in critical condition after being attacked by a deer.
Timmy Keatts of Indian Mound in Stewart County was knocked into the water while walking near a pond.
The deer later attacked a state wildlife officer, but he was not hurt. The deer was tranquilized and put down.
Officials say it's deer mating season and they are unusually aggressive at this time of year.
