A 60-year-old man, head of a local hunting society, was gored to death by a deer overnight in the Correze region of central France, local police said.

The retiree was returning with a friend from an afternoon's hunting in the forest of Saint-Etienne-aux-Clos, near Ussel, when the deer burst through trees and charged the men.

Severely wounded in the chest by the long horns of the deer, the hunter died a short time after emergency services arrived, police said.

The animal quickly disappeared after the attack.

Police in Ussel are investigating the incident to try to understand what triggered the deer's attack and if the animal had been fleeing from other hunters.
