Deer wakes up in Wisconsin man's trunk

Posted at 7:08 PM, Nov 19, 2016

A Wisconsin man gets an unexpected surprise after hitting a deer with his car in Adams County. 

WISC-TV reports the 59-year-old man thought he had killed the deer so he decided to put it in the back of his car. The man discovered that the deer was still alive and called the Adams County Sheriff's Department.

Dashboard camera video shows the deputy and the man opening the trunk and the deer reviving and then running into the woods.

No laws were broken in this incident.

Police say law enforcement should be called when a crash first happens. If the deer is dead, it can be tagged by the Wisconsin DNR.
