HOWELL TOWNSHIP, NJ (NEWS10) – It appears deer aren’t always caught in the headlights. Sometimes, they fight back.
A police officer in Howell Township, New Jersey was on his way to a call when he saw Ellen Snyder of Howell literally kicking a deer out of her truck.
To be fair Snyder said she hit the deer with her truck first. She said when she opened the door to see what had happened, the animal tried to climb inside.
“I was up like this. Um, and I had a hold of him here and I had my foot into him. I mean it happened so fast. I just grabbed a handful of antlers and tried to keep it from killing me basically,” said Snyder.
Snyder said she has some bruises but is otherwise okay.
