New TV Show: When Whitetails Attack
By Scott Bestul
From WTHI TV News:
The story of deer attacking pedestrians on the Southern Illinois University campus in Carbondale is drawing national attention.
SIU wildlife researcher Clay Nielsen is set to appear Sunday night on an hour-long Discovery Channel program called "When Animals Strike. . . ."
Nielsen addresses a series of human-deer encounters at SIU during the summers of 2005 and 2006. That's when a half dozen people required hospital care after being attacked by deer at the school.
