Homeowner Locks Wayward Deer In Bathroom

SUMMIT TWP. (WWJ/AP) – When a deer bounded into a Jackson County home, a resident sprang into action, locking the animal in a bathroom.

It happened Sunday night in Summit Township.

Two sheriff’s deputies and a sergeant responded to a Sunday night that the animals had jumped into the house through a picture window.

Undersheriff Christopher Kuhl told the Jackson Citizen Patriot, “there is a lot of damage to the bathroom and the kitchen window.” The officers were able to get the deer out through the bathroom window.

No serious injuries were reported.

Kuhl said although it’s rare for a deer to enter a home it’s not unheard of.

A similar incident took place in November at an Ottawa County home, which neighbors said “looked like a crime scene.” That same month, a deer crashed through a window at a Michigan State University campus building. Another entered a Howell church where it caused an estimated $1,200 in damage.
