Breaking news out of Waskom this morning:

Harrison County Sheriff's Department Public Information Officer Jay Web confirms a man in his 60s has just died after being attacked by his pet deer.

Deputies have not released the identity of the man yet, but say it was his granddaughter that called to alert them of the attack.

The man raised the buck since it was young, and today when he was trying to move the deer from one location to another, it kicked him.

Game wardens have since shot the deer. Deputies warn of the dangers of raising a wild animal as a pet.
