Deer dashes into Decatur bank

DECATUR—A deer burst through the window of a Decatur bank and neither the building nor the deer was better off for the encounter.

PNC Bank branch manager Brad Wagers tells The Herald and Review newspaper in Decatur that the young deer crashed through an office window about 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The deer ran through the building apparently looking for an exit and in the process injured itself and damaged the building’s interior. Macon County Animal Control Warden Paulette Smith says the deer was shot with a tranquilizer dart and later euthanized.

Construction worker Jordan Stanberry says he watched the deer dash across a busy street and into the window. Stanberry says he thought “don’t do it” as he watched the deer sprint toward the window.
