EAST LAKE, Fla., Nov. 9 (UPI) — Authorities in Florida said sheriff’s deputies investigating a suspected home intruder discovered a deer thrashing around the inside of a house.
Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies said they entered the East Lake, Fla., home at 1 p.m. Saturday and discovered blood on the kitchen floor, the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Monday.
The deputies said they followed banging noises to a back bedroom and witnessed the deer sprinted out of the room and run around the house. The deputies herded the deer toward an open garage door and the animal ran off into the Brooker Creek Preserve, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Sheriff’s officials said the homeowners were out of town at the time of the incident. Neighbors boarded up a damaged window and secured the entrances of the home.
