Varysburg, N.Y. — Deputies say the owner of an animal safari in Wyoming County was trampled to death.

Crews were called to Hidden Valley Animal Adventures around 12:30 a.m. Monday.

According to deputies, Hans Boxler, 81, was feeding animals in a fenced-in laneway when he was trampled by a Nilgai antelope that somehow had gotten out of its pen.

Family members found the antelope near its pen with an open door.
