Killed by a Deer

14 October 1783

Edinburgh Advertiser

We hear from Gargunnock, (about six miles west of Stirling,) that a man named McGregor, while digging potatoes in a field there, was attacked by a deer, who gave the poor man so severe a blow on the head as instantly to kill him. He then pursued two other men, and wounded them much.

The deer was shot by order of the owner. This was the animal that followed the West French (sp) Regiment while quartered here.
