In a bizarre and tragic accident, a hunter in Arkansas was killed Tuesday by a deer that he believed he had shot dead.

Though law enforcement stressed they were ultimately speculating on the incident, the fatal attack appeared to have happened after hunter Thomas Alexander shot a deer from a hunting stand and then went to inspect its body. The deer then attacked him with its antlers, fatally goring him.

A game warden called the death “strange” and “probably the only time it ever happened.”
