Another Deer Shopper Case

After last week's incident in Georgetown, there was another case yesterday of a deer entering a store. This time a deer entered a Giant in Montgomery County, after it had entered several other stores. The sequence of events is somewhat muddled in the article, but apparently it entered the store by smashing through a window and then ran around inside. A police officer arrived on the scene and shot it in the head.

Incidents like this probably are to be expected when there are so many people and so many deer living in such close proximity to each other. Someone else might correct me on this, but I believe this is the breeding season for deer. So these animals are probably a bit more rambunctious because of the hormones at work. Whatever the cause, I hope that we do not have more of these incidents since they pose danger for everyone involved.
