And it's come to this

The deer hunter

Thomas Alexander was hunting deer near the Orzak mountains in Arkansas when he shot and felled a buck. When he approached the animal to check that it was dead, it stood up and gored him. Mr Alexander was later declared deceased.

As Oscar Wilde wrote on the death of Little Nell in The Old Curiosity Shop: one must have a heart of stone to read the death of [Thomas Alexander] without laughing.
