Workers at a Jackson, Mississippi business got a break-in they didn't expect. "The last thing you expect to do, is come to work and find a large deer standing behind your desk," said Margie Purvis. The deer crashed through a double paned window and found his way to the break room where employees locked him in.
The 80 pound spike was not happy with the room layout. He knocked over tables and chairs and even tried to leap on top of cabinets to escape. Employees stayed at bay until Animal Control arrived, but even they were caught off guard. After a few minutes of planning, an animal control officer went in and eventually came out with a bloody and tired deer.
As Animal Control led the deer to freedom outside, employees examined the damage left behind inside. "He trashed it. We definitely need a paint job and a carpet cleaner," said Richard Lingle. Workers say they may never know why the deer decided to crash into their workplace.
"The deer could have been chased by something and ran through the glass, or he could have seen himself and wanted to fight, I mean you don't know," said Lingle. Animal Control officials say the deer had a few cuts from his run in with the window, however they expect him to make a full recovery back out in the woods.
