Deer gets loose inside Concordia University, damages kitchenette area

A deer broke through a window into Concordia University Wednesday night and caused some damage before it found its way back out, the university says.

The deer found itself stuck indoors shortly before 6:00 p.m., according to the university's Director of Communications Kali Thiel. It "did a number" on a kitchenette area that serves Augsburg residence hall before finding a different window to escape through.

The kitchenette suffered "pretty extensive" damage, according to the university's security team, though a dollar estimate wasn't yet available.

While one deer roaming the halls of an academic institution is strange enough, this isn't the first time this has happened at Concordia University. In 2012, a deer found itself inside Concordia's cafeteria. A video of that incident has racked up thousands of views on YouTube.

Thiel tells TODAY'S TMJ4 no university students or staff were injured. The deer bloodied its mouth but its injuries are not believed to be serious.
