This story comes from one of the cities in Soutwest Ohio which Pharmer served in retail pharmacy practice.
It seems that a woman was attacked by an assailant as she left a party. As he was attempting to choke and drag her, the commotion disturbed a deer who was apparently bedded down for the night. The deer took off running, and that, in turn, scared off the attacker. The woman escaped without serious injury, and still in possession of her purse.
This particular woman has perhaps lost the taste for venison.
