ABERDEEN, N.J. – The buck didn't stop when it crashed through a window at an elementary school here Tuesday morning; it ran into the school cafeteria before being let out the back door, police said.
No one was injured in the incident, which took place shortly before 10 a.m. at the Lloyd Road School, the Asbury Park Press reported on its Web site.
Twenty fifth graders and several teachers were startled when the deer crashed through a classroom window, then ran out into the hallway and into the cafeteria, Deputy Police Chief Rick Derechailo told the newspaper.
Police officers and school staff were able to corral the deer using lunch tables and coax him out the back door.
Once outside, the deer unsuccessfully tried to jump through a second classroom window before running off into the woods, said Derechailo.
It was unclear if the deer suffered any injuries.
