A 27-year-old game manager has been gored to death at an exotic game hunting ranch in Central Texas by a rare deer known for its full, sharply pointed rack. Brandon Buchi, a game manager at the Y.O. Ranch, suffered puncture wounds to the side and thigh last week.

Kerrville County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer said Wednesday that the deer, known as a Barasingha, attacked after Buchi removed it from a transport trailer on ranch grounds Oct. 1.

Hierholzer tells the Austin American-Statesman that the deer died from the exertion of the attack.

The Y.O. Ranch, founded in 1880, is located about 100 miles west of Austin.
