A woman in Northern California is recovering from major injuries, after being attacked by a deer, all for trying to protect her great grandson.The animals usually roam free on this ranch in Placer County, but recently a usually calm buck named "Billy" started charging toward Doris Bower's great-grandson and his mother.

Witnesses said Bower stepped out in front of the deer.

The buck rammed his antlers into Bower's leg, severing a main artery.

A ranger showed up and shot and killed the buck before it could do more harm.

Bower underwent surgery and is expected to fully recover.
