A west end grocery store had to be evacuated after a deer wandered in.
Shoppers at the Metro store at University Plaza were asked to leave after the full-grown doe, believed to be about 300 pounds, walked in just after 9am yesterday.
Staff at the store say the deer walked through two automatic doors and surprised shoppers and the employees.
A veterinarian who was called to the store says the deer was likely attracted to the front door because there are Christmas trees for sale outside.
The deer was corraled in an office behind the pharmacy section, where it was shot with a tranquillizer dart.
Animal Control officers released the deer on the rail trail, where it scampered off.
