(London Independent) A hunter who shot and killed an elk while on a trip near Oregon’s Maury Mountains has been impaled by the animal’s antlers as he attempted to drag it back to his camp.
Gary Heeter, 69, from Bend, Oregon, was hunting with a group on Saturday morning when he killed the elk.
Mr Heeter attached the elk to his four-wheeler and began driving back to the camp. But when he encountered a steep hillside his vehicle flipped upwards and the hunter was sent backwards onto the animal, becoming impaled in the back, The Oregonian reported.
