MOORHEAD, Minn. – After becoming disoriented and wandering into the city of Moorhead, Minn., over the weekend, a herd of deer panicked and crashed into windows and doors at the local mall, police said.
Police were called Saturday morning when about six Whitetail deer had become disoriented in the city of 40,000 people in northwestern Minnesota, the Grand Forks Herald reported.
The deer then ran into the Moorhead Center Mall, with one dying after it crashed through a large window at the center. Another was accidentally run over by a minivan nearby. According to WDAY-TV, the driver took the dead deer home for dinner.
Moorhead police officer Josh Schroder told the station, "This is one of the most interesting things I have seen since I have been up here and I have been up here for seven years."
