Even the animals are weird in Wisconsin, apparently.
About 4 p.m. yesterday, a deer that was being chased by a dog slammed through a window at the University of Wisconsin-Stout's Vocational Rehabilitation building. The deer, dripping blood, then took an impromptu tour of the building before politely showing itself the exit through the building's automatic doors.
The damages are estimated at $5,500, which includes window repair and cleaning a blood trail left by the deer, according to officials...
Authorities said the deer crashed through the window on the east side of the building after being chased by a dog. The deer exited the building through the automatic doors on the south side of the building.
Officials tracked the deer as it ran in a southerly direction through campus, but the blood trail ended and the deer was not found.
Sounds like it was quite the scene, so it's a bummer there doesn't appear to be any video footage. Where are camera phone-toting students when you need them?
