I had a run in with this creature a couple of years ago, one early morning. I saw a bunch of deer and they took off all of a sudden. Then I saw two ears just above a bush. And ten feet away from me he appeared. They are not normally known for attacking humans, but I did not take any chances. I had my knife out just in case I had to protect myself. Needless to say I was unnerved. All I saw him do was pounce on a few field mice. That was it. I will know better next time not to be so scared. This was the only image i had a chance to take.
