Deer walks into Pa. sporting goods store through front door, gets tackled by customer
READING, Pa. – Shoppers looking for post-Christmas bargains have gotten a surprise at a northeastern Pennsylvania sporting goods store after a deer decided to join them.You know, folks that hunt with black powder weapons or bows often do so because it's more challenging than with a conventional rifle. Now, tackling the deer, that is a challenge right there. Mano-a-venado. Fist vs. antler. You know, like Bear Grylls or something (I was going to say Chuck Norris, except we all know that Chuck would roundhouse-kick a deer into neat piles of venison burger and jerky).
WFMZ-TV (http://bit.ly/1eGYihd ) says the deer walked through the front door of a Dick's Sporting Goods store in Reading on Thursday afternoon.
This is the second story about a suicidal deer in as many weeks. I mean, first a deer jumps into a cheetah enclosure, and now one wanders into a Dick's Sporting Goods? What's going on in the Cervidae world that so many have decided it wasn't worth living any more? I mean, it certainly explains the roadways here in Northern Virginia, but other than that why all the suicidal ruminants?
I'm guessing we're going to see teenaged deer start throwing themselves at band saws next...
That is all.
