Evanston, Wyoming – An Evanston woman is recovering from injuries she sustained last Thursday when she confronted a buck who had been laying in her driveway. Wanda Kaynor was shocked to see the buck in her driveway when she exited her home last week, and she began screaming at the animal when her dog ran directly into harm’s way.
Ring video captured the incident that shows Kaynor throwing her hat and screaming at the buck as he pushes the little dog underneath the car parked in the driveway. Her husband, Daniel, told KSL News:
“Of course, the buck didn’t like that. So, he went after him with his antlers and shoved him underneath the car.”
Describing what happened when his wife confronted the buck:
“She threw her hat at the thing, and of course, it came after her now.”
When the buck charged at Kaynor, he shoved her with his antlers, creating seven puncture wounds and crushing a vertebra in her back.
Daniel was able to grab hold of the buck’s antlers and get the animal away from his injured wife. In the process, he was punctured in his waist.
A UPS driver on the street came to the rescue and got the injured woman into his truck and to the hospital. Wanda was hospitalized and has weeks of recovery in her future. And the buck was killed by wildlife officials after a relative reported the incident to Wyoming Fish and Game.
