Deer Runs Through a Wireless Store

A store in Wayne, Pa. had an unwelcomed visitor on Monday afternoon.

A six-point buck ran right through the open front door of the Sprint Store in the Gateway Shopping Center on 285 Swedesford Road.

The deer hopped the customer service desk, knocking over a computer, according to the store’s manager Jeremy Johnson.

There were no customers in the store at the time as only Johnson and an associate were inside. They ran out, locked the door and called 9-1-1.

"Obviously you don't expect that, Johnson said. "You have to look at yourself and think 'is this really happening?"

The animal broke the sink in the back bathroom of the store -- possibly because it saw itself in the mirror. The deer was hurt in the process leaving blood on the floor.

The whole incident what caught on what else but cell phone video by employee Kunjan Patel.

"I texted them that a deer just ran through our store," Patel said.

Police tried to corral the animal but after all the havoc, the deer simply ran back out the same way it came in, according to witnesses.

The animal trotted away so it's unclear how badly it was hurt.
