Found on Google Groups; posted by me to rec.bicycles.misc in 1997:

"A couple of years ago within the first mile of an early morning autumn club ride we had just rounded a corner when we heard a thrashing sound in the woods to our right. I was number three in a pace line of perhaps a dozen bikes. Suddenly two bucks with full racks of antlers came charging out of the woods right next to me, one apparently chasing the other. Instead of just crashing through the line, they turned and ran along the shoulder parallel to us, sort of like a double pace line. Eventually the chasee cleared the lead rider, turned abruptly left and clattered across the road, followed immediately by the chaser. Woke us all up real quick, right Fred? (Fred Avery was lead rider when this happened; are you out there Fred?)"
