Rampaging Deer Shatters Tables & Chairs After Leaping Into Bar Through Window

KHQ.COM - Restaurant staff say they have no idea why this male deer decided to pay a visit to a downtown bar.

The buck jumped straight through a window at Luke's Bar and Grill in Bluffton, Ohio, before leaving a trail of destruction through the thankfully empty restaurant.

Staff ran for cover as the large animal struggled to maintain its footing on the slippery hardwood floor, smashing through tables and sending chairs flying.

 Barmaid Danielle Weyer jumped up on to the bar to avoid being run down by the marauding deer.

She said: 'I figured that was the best idea to stay as far away from the deer as possible.

'One customer held up a chair like it was a lion.'

CCTV footage inside the bar captured the terrified creature as it shattered two tables and left puncture holes in the leather chairs from its antlers in a desperate attempt to escape the bar.

Roy Rayle, chef at the restaurant, said he realised he had to free the deer after it stopped in front of the glass back door and looked like it was considering jumping through it again.

He said: 'I don't know if I was scared, it was an adrenaline pumping situation and it was the last think I would have expected.'
