Troy police responded to Kohl’s Saturday night after a deer ran into the store.

UPDATE @ 2:45 p.m. (Dec. 18)

News Center 7’s Lauren Clark spoke with Kohl’s shoppers Monday, showing them video of the deer running through the store and gathering their reaction.

“I mean frightened animals in cornered spaces is something I would not want to personally deal with,” one shopper said.

The deer was ramming its head into a mirror in the home goods aisle before a male and female grab the deer, hold it down and try to calm it.

The store was temporarily evacuated Saturday as staff worked to capture the deer before any injuries occurred.

Miami County dispatchers received seven calls about the animal.

"Every couple years we seem to get a deer break through a glass window somewhere into a store, they’re rare,” Gummerlock said. “They get spooked and do a lot of things."
