Arkansas has had the strangest news item so far today with this: Courthouse video shows a running deer crash through a window and run in place on the slippery floor a once inside the building. The deer appeared to be running from something when it took a turn, broke through a window and ended up in the courthouse. Hopefully the animal wasn’t hurt too badly by the glass.
Surveillance cameras recorded a deer as it broke into an Arkansas courthouse Monday afternoon, startling employees and patrons before being safely removed.
Video shows the deer running outside Cross County Courthouse in Wynne before it slams headlong into a glass pane, shattering it, before sliding into a counter inside the courthouse.
County Collector Debbie Davis said she had a front row view when the doe came bursting in.
“I heard a loud boom and looked up and saw glass shattering everywhere,” Davis said. “I asked myself, ‘was someone playing a trick on me?’”
… Law enforcement and officers from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission managed to corral the panicked animal
Also in the strange news on the animals in stores theme, some pranksters have recently been releasing chickens in stores in Lethbridge, a city in the province of Alberta, Canada. Headlines will cite fowl play, no doubt.
