BUSHKILL, Pa. (AP)--   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 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.
