1908 - TOSSED BY A BULL DEER.
While hundreds of spectators looked on, helpless to interfere, Ajax, an Asiatic bull deer in the Bronx park zoo, New York, becoming suddenly enraged, crept up behind Keeper William C. Reardon while he was mowing the deer enclosure Saturday and tossed him a dozen feet in the air. As Reardon dropped to the ground Ajax attacked him with his antlers. Reardon was unconscious and he was hurried to Fordham hospital, where it was said Saturday night that while his injuries were serious, he would recover.
