Several years ago we had a doe raise her fawns in the far end of our back yard.
We also had a very old dog that was partly blind wonder back there one day.
He wasn’t even close.
30-40 yards away.
That deer charged him and kicked the living snot out of poor old dog.
My daughter had to literally beat it with a stick.
Really messed up our old dog.
Not a fan.
No more deer allowed here.

Deer are dangerous wildlife. I'm sure they injure more people every year than most or all predators. Of course any animal can be dangerous when protecting their young. I'm sorry about your dog, that sucks. It probably happened because you had been indoctrinated from an early age that deer are gentle, peace-loving vegetarians. Well they are for the most part but like any wildlife, people and pets need to maintain a safe distance and 120 feet was apparently too close. In addition to any animal being capable of attacking, there are the occasional rogue animals that are just ornery or having a bad day.

The deer didn't attack him, he just got in the way of it!
