Deer Breaks Into Minnesota Home

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. - At least the deer didn't act like a bull in a china shop. Vicki Mohler awoke Monday to the sound of breaking glass. She leaped out of bed and confirmed her two children were safe in their rooms, but she heard footsteps.

"Who's here?" she recalled screaming. "What do you want?"

When she followed the sounds of the intruder and peered into her basement, the sight brought both relief and shock: she saw the furry hind end of a deer.

She flung her side door wide open and called her husband at work.

"We have an emergency here!" she told him. "We have a deer — a deer! — in our house!"

Coming back to the side door, she saw a bit of blood outside and realized the deer had shown itself out.

Though the deer had leapt through a window and knocked over a lamp, it didn't disturb curio cabinets filled with dozens of fragile figurines in Mohler's living room. And it didn't seem to graze any items in the kitchen on its way to the basement, not even the refrigerator magnets arranged neatly in rows.

The family feels lucky. So should the deer.

Mohler's husband, Tim, is a hunter. He came home minutes after getting the call.

"If that deer was still here, we would have had venison for supper," he told her.
