MARIN COUNTY, Calif., June 18 (UPI) -- A California man is suing the state Department of Fish and Game, claiming a "mismanaged" wild deer attacked him, a court document shows.
Thadeusz Wyrzykowski of Bolinas said in his handwritten court filing that he suffered injuries from falling into a window after deer jumped into his fenced yard last spring and "attacked me (twice) on a narrow path."
Asking for unspecified damages, he wrote in his filing that the wildlife department "mismanaged negligently its animal its claims & duties."
A case management conference was scheduled for Oct. 19 in Marin Superior Court, the Marin Independent Journal reported Monday.
The newspaper said Wyrzykowski filed another handwritten lawsuit in federal court last year against the Marin County Assessor-Recorder's Office over the county's efforts to collect overdue property taxes from him, in which he described himself as an "independent dignity ambassador" and "orator/scholar/artist." Deputy County Counsel Edward Kiernan called that suit full of "nonsensical, irrelevant non sequitors" and "legally meaningless and pointless facts."
That suit was dismissed, the newspaper noted.
