According to a report in the Cumberland-Times News, a woman was also exposed to the virus by a white-tailed deer. This poor gal, was kicked in the face by the offending whitetail. Yikes!
The last thing Theresa Stevens expected to happen July 6 was to be kicked in the face by a deer, especially a deer that had rabies.
The Georges Creek Boulevard woman is part way through a series of post-exposure rabies shots that will continue weekly into early August.
Stevens, whose home is directly behind Jolly Roger Discount Liquors, said she had let her Yorkie out of the house at 6 a.m. when she looked up and found herself nose to nose with a deer.
“It stood up on its back legs and hit me in the cheek with one hoof and on the shoulder with the other,” Stevens told the Cumberland-Times.
Stevens pushed the deer away, grabbed her dog, and awakened her husband, Larry, telling him she had been attacked by a deer.
