BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio -- A 75-year-old northeast Ohio woman is recovering from injuries she received this week when a deer got into her home and attacked her.
Mary Blake of suburban Cleveland opened her patio door Wednesday to let her border collie back inside and was shocked when a female deer followed close behind.
Blake says she tried to shut the door, but the deer knocked it off track and then knocked into Blake and started stomping her.
Blake frantically called police as the deer damaged her walls, furniture and some keepsakes.
Two police officers arrived and were able to coax the deer outside.
Blake was treated at the hospital for bruises and cuts on her arms, legs and stomach. She has 27 stitches on her right knee.
