Uninvited Guests

Tis the season...

CHARLEVOIX, MI - A wayward deer caused damage to a Charlevoix business Friday. Charlevoix deputy police chief Scott Hankins said he was called to the Auto Value store, located at 108 West Carpenter St., at about 5:29 p.m. to a report that a deer had just crashed through a front window at the business and was still running around inside the building. Hankins said the business was open and about four employees were inside at the time of the incident.

GRANITE CITY, MO - Imagine waking up to a 150 pound deer, crashing through your living room window. A Granite City husband and wife wish that would have been a bad dream. Instead, it was part of a frightening reality. The Pulliam family still can't believe what woke them up Saturday morning. It was the sound of glass shattering, and a deer jumping through the front window. The unexpected breakfast guest showed up almost 7:30 in the morning. All 150 pounds of the deer came crashing through the living room.

NORMAL, IL - As officials at Southern Illinois University deal with an angry doe who's been attacking students and staff, authorities in central Illinois are having problems of their own. At a retirement residence in Normal, a woman in her 80s found an uninvited -- and bleeding -- guest in her apartment. A doe had crashed through her bedroom window and bumbled around her apartment, breaking a lamp and an air-conditioning unit. It ended up in her bathtub. Though officials tried to save the deer, it was eventually euthanized. The woman was not injured.
