In a rare, dare we say unprecedented incident for Lamorinda, a Lafayette resident was taken to the hospital for treatment Monday after reportedly being kicked in the head by a deer.
The incident, reported at 8:11 a.m. on Marlene Drive, left locals scratching their heads.
An initial report that the person, an adult male, had also been bitten could not be immediately confirmed.
There was also conflicting information on the possible cause of such an incident, with some suggesting local deer are “fawning” and more high-strung – and possibly aggressive – than usual. It was also not known what sort of contact transpired between man and deer prior to the incident.
Attempts to reach local animal experts proved unsuccessful immediately after the incident, but we’re hoping to get additional information on how it transpired.
