Caught On Tape: Deer Jumping Through Heath Convenience Store Window
HEATH (Tara Morgan) -- A middle of the day surprise for some convenience store customers and employees when a deer jumps through the store window.
Surveillance cameras captured those frightening moments at the Speedway on State Rt. 79 near Andover Road in Heath.
Police say the deer had a running start when it jumped through a plate glass window.
The deer fell onto the tile floor then the dazed, confused and injured animal wandered around looking for a way out.
"It looked like the deer was spooked by something and was trying to run away and got confused," said Sgt. Norman Ream.
It's believed the deer ran across five lanes of traffic.
Officers got to the store in minutes.
"My understanding was they did try to get the deer out of the store they were not able to do that and for safety reasons after they cleared the store out they did have to put the animal down," said Sgt. Ream.
Sgt. Ream says a bystander asked to take the carcass home.
