  • [01] Deer blamed for death of two workers

  • [01] Deer blamed for death of two workers

    Two foreign workers were killed over the weekend on a Greek farm during an alleged attack by none other than a deer, with only sketchy details available on Monday.

    According to initial reports, the unprecedented incident occurred in a fenced-in pen on a wild animal farm near the central Greek town of Thebes, with the two victims identified as Pakistani nationals.

    When one man went missing in the 200-square-metre pen in the village of Melissohori on Friday afternoon, the other subsequently went to locate the first man a day later on Saturday, reports state.

    Authorities believe the culprit is a male deer inside the pen, as two female deers (does) were inside as well. Blood was reportedly found on the male deer's antlers.

    The owner of the farm, a 56-year-old local man, was taken into custody for questioning, a customary procedure when a work-place fatality occurs.
