We were intrigued on Monday by a story on Oregon Public Broadcasting about a close encounter of the wild kind. Kevin Cox, a seventh grader running a cross-country race in Bend, apparently stumbled upon an amorous deer…that seemingly got a little too comfortable and frisky with him. The story went on to say that the lonely deer gave chase and at one point even smothered him with kisses!

Curiosity got the better of us…after a search online, we found some amazing photography of this incident to share with you. Check it out…our friends at KGW and OPB both have slide shows of this bizare, “Only in Oregon” story.
