It was smashing, thrashing, and trying to evade police, but in the end, a deer was safely apprehended by the Kamloops RCMP after it broke into a house.

On Saturday (Jan. 23), police responded to a report of a deer inside a house on the 900-block of Pine Springs Road. The deer had entered through a small dog door and was jumping at the fireplace and window, trying to escape. A big-screen TV and some other items were damaged during its attempts.

“Wildlife inside a house can be extremely destructive,” said Const. Crystal Evelyn. “In this case, police were able to safely help the deer out, preventing any further harm from occurring to the animal or the house.”

Officers used a blanket to cover the deer’s head, then held it down, placed a rug underneath it, and slid the deer out of the house. The deer appeared uninjured, other than receiving a minor cut to its mouth when it entered the house through the dog door.
