East Texas man killed by pet deer.
WASKOM, TX (KLTV) - A Harrison County man in his 60's has been killed by his pet deer.
Officials say 67-year-old Gerald Rushton was raising a European Red Stag on his property along with other animals.
As Rushton was entering the stag's pen to feed it, the 550 pound animal became aggressive, charged and pinned Rushton against a fence. Investigators say Rushton was gored several times and trampled.
The red stag was killed so rescuers could get to Rushton, but they say he was already dead.
