Deer crashes through window, finds its way to break room at Miss. business

JACKSON, Miss. -- Workers at a Mississippi business got a break-in they didn't expect when a deer showed up to crash the workday!

It was a wild start to the day for employees inside a Jackson, Mississippi business when a deer crashed through a double-paned window and found his way into the break room -- before employees locked him in.

"The last thing you expect to do, is come to work and find a large deer standing behind your desk," one worker said.

The 80-pound spike was clearly 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 then, they were caught off guard. After a few minutes of planning, an animal control officer went in and eventually came out with the bloody and tired deer.

As animal control led the deer to freedom outside, inside employees examined the damage left behind.

"He trashed (the break room). We definitely need a paint job and a carpet cleaner," one employee said.

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," one employee said.

Animal control officials say the deer had a few cuts from his run-in with the window, but they expect him to make a full recovery back out in the woods.
