Oh deer! Georgia woman pumping gas kicked in head by deer

A Georgia woman went to fill up her gas tank before work Wednesday morning when the unexpected happened. 

Lynda Tennent told News4Jax she was pumping gas in Brunswick when a deer leaped over her head, kicking her in the process. 

"I thought I was being robbed," Tennent said. " I reached up and grabbed my head... I thought I was bleeding." 

The hoof hit when she wasn't looking, taking her by surprise. She stood there for a minute to process what happened. 

Despite everything, she told News4Jax she was still in good spirits. 

"You know the funny thing? I was just worried I was going to be late for work." 

Tennent said the deer ran off. Now she has a story to tell her coworkers.
