WADENA, Minn. (AP) - A confused white-tailed deer that wandered into a Walmart store in Minnesota was taken down by an unsuspecting customer who was blindsided by the animal.
Shoppers at the Wadena (wah-DEE'-nah) Walmart store speculated the frightened deer was in search of a snack when it walked into the store through the garden center doors Tuesday.
Tom Grasswick, who just happens to live in Deer Creek, tells WDAY-TV he felt like someone had slugged him when the deer slammed into him. Grasswick says his first instinct was tackle the animal, bringing the deer down on a pallet of dog food.
Grasswick covered the eyes of the startled deer and he and others managed to remove the animal and set it free outdoors.
