2 hospitalized after fight over dead deer in Pa.

Two men have been hospitalized after a fight over a deer carcass in northeastern Pennsylvania.

State police say the altercation happened in Lehman Township on Saturday. That's when 33-year-old Bethlehem resident Jason Frey says he shot a deer and tracked it to a property owned by 48-year-old Anthony Contino Sr.

The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports ( http://bit.ly/n314ut) authorities say Frey approached Contino, who told him the deer was his and that an associate had shot it earlier that day. Contino then told Frey to leave the property.

A fight ensued involving the two men and others. Frey and another man, 57-year-old Arthur Frey, had to be taken to hospitals. They were reported in stable condition.
