Two men in Texas were attacked by a deer in their front yard before it stole their cigarettes.

Joseph Rose and Cole Kellis were leaving their house in Whitehouse, Texas, on Friday when they noticed a deer in the yard, KETK-TV reported.

The deer seemed friendly but charged when one of the men approached, KETK reported.

The pair ran to Rose's pickup truck to escape the buck, but one of the men was forced to jump into the truck bed to avoid the raging animal.

With the driver-side door left open, the deer climbed in and took a pack of cigarettes from the centre console and started to eat them, KETK reported.

Rose told KETK he tried to get the smokes back, but the deer got even more aggressive.

Police had to hit the buck with a stun gun. Rose said it still took more than five men to restrain it before it was freed.
