According to zoo officials, the animal keeper, Akbar went to the deer enclosure and after releasing them into the display area, sought to administer medicine that were prescribed to a male deer.
In what the officials describe as mock attempt at aggression, the deer hit the keeper and pressed him to the compound wall with its antlers.
“There were no major external injuries but as he was pressed with antlers, Akbar had some discomfort and a bit of internal dislocations. We rushed him to Yashoda hospital at Malakpet and got him treated.
The zoo is taking care of his treatment costs,” the zoo curator, B.N.N.Murthy said.
Usually, deer are reticent in nature and not known to attack, officials said adding that the mock attempt could have been a defensive response when the animal keeper went with medicine.
According to a forest department source, Parbat Dorjee, 50, was working in Hope Tea Estate in Nagrakata.
“While Dorjee was walking in the plantation, a tusker came out of the adjoining forests of Sipchu and trampled him to death. The jumbo then went back to the forest. This morning, local people found the body and informed us,” said a forest officer.
In another incident, a tusker came out of the Diana forest last night and damaged two huts in Kalikhola village.
The wild elephant later entered Luksan, a locality nearby, and damaged another house.
The animal’s next destination was Grassmore Tea Estate where it damaged 12 huts.
“We fled with our families as the tusker was roaming around damaging one hut after another. Some of us burst crackers and beat empty containers, which made the animal move towards the forest,” a worker of Grassmore garden said.
Tapas Das, the conservator of forests (wildlife, north Bengal), said the department would give compensation to the deceased night guard’s family as well as those whose huts had been damaged.
In another development, officers of Kathambari forest beat in the Dooars today trapped an adult female leopard in a small tea plantation at Kranti near Lataguri.
“The animal had been roaming around in the plantation for some days. We were informed by local people and accordingly, a trap was set up. The leopard has been taken to Gorumara National Park and will be released into the wild after a medical examination,” said Das.
A female elephant, according to forest department sources, killed Birabar Parida(50) after she turned furious over the death of her three-year-old baby last night near the village. The baby elephant was killed by another tusker.
The shocked mother elephant stayed with the body of the baby elephant and refused to go away even in the morning. When the villagers tried to chase her away, she strayed into the village and found Birabar in her way and killed him instantly.
Enraged over the incident, more than 200 people, who staged the blockade between Cuttack-Sambalpur, demanded adequate protection against the attack from a herd of elephants.
“We are at the receiving end as a herd of wild elephants has created havoc in our village for some time. They killed a villager last week and now took one more life. There is no safeguard to our village people on behalf of forest department who are callous to our woes. We live in constant fear and threat from wild animals. We demand full proof security against the menace,” said a villager.
The blockade continued from 11 am to 1 pm till the senior forest department authorities reached the spot and assured to take all steps to safeguard the village from recurrent attacks from the elephants roaming in that area for some time, according to Inspector-in-Charge of Sadar police station P. K. Jena.
Divisional forest officer of Dhenkanal P.K. Sahu who rushed to the spot where the baby elephant died said all steps are being taken to provide security to the people and drive away the elephants from the area.
The calf apparently died in the attack by a tusker in the herd last night after which the mother elephant became hostile, Sahu added.

A Native American man found dead in a New Mexico field last week near the Navajo Nation reservation may have been mauled by a pack of as many as 10 dogs, police said on Monday.
Gallup Police Department spokesman Rick White said the man, who did not have identification on him but appeared to be in his mid-40s, was found by a passer-by.
“We do not have a definitive cause of death yet but it appears he was attacked by dogs,” White said, although he could not give a precise cause of death. “There definitely were defense wounds from dog bites.”
White said the man may have fought off the dogs then succumbed to the single digit temperatures in Gallup on Thursday night before his body was found on Friday. The body was taken to Albuquerque for an autopsy.
Police said animal control officials had received complaints about a pack of 10 dogs prior to the fatal incident and were trying to catch them with traps.
The death is not the first such fatal mauling in the Gallup area and comes after an elderly man walking in a westside community was mauled by a pack of dogs four years ago.
Similarly in November, a woman on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming died from hypothermia and blood loss tied to severe injuries inflicted by “multiple dogs,” Fremont County Chief Deputy Coroner Mark Stratmoen said in a statement at the time.
The injured persons were admitted to nearby Gobara hospital, while those in serious condition shifted to the sub divisional hospital at Bhanjanagar and MKCG Medical College and Hospital here, divisional forest officer (DFO), Ghumusara North division, Rama Swamy P, said.
The boar might have attacked the people when they apparently tried to drive it away on Friday evening in order to save the standing vegetable crops in the nearby village, forest officials said.
The wild boars are often found ravaging the standing crops in the area, they said.
The injured will be provided assistance as per the government provision, the DFO said.
“We have constituted squads to keep a watch in forest-side villages in the area on the movement of the wild boars,” he stated.
Police personnel were also assisting forest staffs in patrolling.

The male animal entered the building about 1.30pm and was trapped in the library for almost two hours.
Firemen from the Cyberjaya station arrived 10 minutes after the boar entered the library and told those in the building to leave.
In a statement, MMU chief librarian Kamal Sujak said staff and students in the library at the time were startled to see the animal.
However, he said the firemen, Wildlife and National Parks rangers and the university’s safety department managed to get the boar out after almost two hours.
“The animal had likely strayed from the nearby jungle due to the rapid development around Cyberjaya,” he said.
Kamal said part of the main library had to be closed to catch the animal but the main reading hall was operating as usual.
He added that the situation was back to normal and that the cleaning up process was underway.
