Basque Country Hunter Gored By Fleeing Deer — Requires 50 Facial Stitches
36-year-old Hunter Vincent Saubion has sustained a gruesome facial injury after a recent hunting trip gone wrong.
Reports have broken of the hunter being seriously injured when a deer he was pursuing fought to escape his crosshairs early this year.
Despite significant blood loss, after receiving first-aid from an off-duty firefighter in his party, Saubion wanted to continue hunting but was encouraged to seek further medical attention instead.
Ultimately, he had to be airlifted to a hospital in Bordeaux for surgery.

“It Actually Took Half My Face Off”
Saubion is in stable condition after surgery, which required 50 stitches in his face, but sharing a graphic report of the incident.
“It actually took half my face off,” he said.
While the hunter has experienced extensive tissue damage, reports show no broken bones — and a steadfast desire to keep hunting animals.
“I am still crazy about hunting.”
It is not known at this time if the deer was injured in the encounter.
