Donner Goes Shopping

The jokes were inevitable after an 8-point buck pranced into a SuperTarget in West Des Moines about 4:20 p.m. Tuesday.

"Someone said he was coming to visit his cousin, Moccasins," said Abby Frasher, an assistant manager of the store at 5405 Mills Civic Pkwy. "That's a really bad joke. Maybe he heard our produce was really crisp."

The deer ran through an automatic door near the store's one-hour photo lab, danced on the floor after it lost traction and fell, and dashed off into the clothing section, said employee Tiffany Miller, who tried to keep her cool as she called for help.

Customers waited in the front of the store while more than 20 employees tried to corral the deer out through an emergency exit.
The buck caused no damage and left no droppings.

Let me see: The Buck Stops Here

When he found out he was in a store, did he say, "Doe!"?

He was going to destroy the hunting department, kamikaze style.

Soon as this story hit the press I'm betting some local hunting yokels started staking out the area.
