Funny, ironic story of the week

You all know I am the last person in the world to laugh at the misfortune of others.....heh, heh. With that being the case, this week's dumb-human-killed-by-angry-animal story comes from my home state of Georgia. Of course it involves a hunter getting killed by his prey, which makes it all the more entertainingly ironic...

BALL GROUND, Ga. — A man has been found dead at his home in Ball Ground after apparently being attacked by a deer.

The body of 66-year-old John Henry Frix was found around 8 p.m. yesterday inside the deer's pen on his property. Cherokee County Sheriff's Sergeant Jay Baker says he had been gored several times in the upper body by a deer's antlers.

The deer was one of several Frix kept on his property. His relatives told sheriff's deputies the deer had recently been acting very aggressive, probably due to rut -- the period when deer mate.

Authorities say it appears Frix tried to fend off the deer, which was the size of a small elk.

A family member later shot and killed the deer.

No charges have been filed and the incident has been turned over to the Department of Natural Resources for further investigation.

No charges have been filed? Against whom would charges be filed? The deer?

I don't have a problem with hunting. In fact, as a second amendment advocate, I support it, but I have to admit when these good ol' boys become the hunted instead of the hunters, it makes my day.

I think the charges would be filed against the person that shot the deer out of season. Of course I don't see how this would be any different than when a dog bites its owner. The dog gets put to sleep, so should the deer.

This sounds like a much more enteraining octagon cage-match than UFC can offer. Think about it: a dude with a knife takes on an antlered deer during rut, 3 rounds, anything goes, no eye-gouging---best reality TV yet.

I think this guy should be a Darwin Award nominee, for trying to domesticate a wild animal with deadly antlers, all without any sort of protection.

I think you are right, this is an ironic truth. I was laughing but at the same time it was an important point of view about the hunting.

To the dumbass that posted this... This is my grandfather. He WAS NOT a hunter you stupid shit head. He loved animals ALIVE not dead. I can only pray that your family NEVER has a mishap such as this, if they do I am sure you would not appreciate the comments.
