When Jody Fabry descended the basement stairs to her seasonal home and saw broken glass on the floor, then spied what caused the mess, she didn't know who was more frightened — her, or the deer that was the culprit.
A young doe apparently got into the basement through a window, then couldn't get out.
Fabry called officers to her home, but it was more difficult than it looked to remove the animal.
Officers eventually ended up chasing it around the basement until it jumped back out the way it came, then bounded off.
The deer, which Fabry guessed had been in the unoccupied home for a day, appeared to be unhurt.
