Deer Breaks Into House, Ransacks Bathroom

Police say a deer burst through the front doors of a New Jersey home, darted through the residence and ransacked the master bathroom. Galloway police received a 911 call at around 3:30pm yesterday from a woman reporting that a deer ran through her house while she was putting sweet potatoes in the oven. The woman said she followed the deer into the back of the house and locked it in a bathroom.

Responding officers found the glass on the front storm door shattered. They also found the frame on the main door damaged, indicating that the deer muscled its way through two doors to enter the home. After a brief standoff, police escorted the deer from the home and released it into the wild. The bathroom was significantly damaged. (More deer stories.)
