Deer makes appearance at Pa. sporting goods storeDecember 26, 2013 @ 7:28 pm
READING, Pa. (AP) - Shoppers looking for post-Christmas bargains have gotten a surprise at a northeastern Pennsylvania sporting goods store after a deer decided to join them.
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.
Store manager Brad Meyer says the deer slipped on the floor and a customer tackled it to the ground, preventing any injuries to customers or damage to the store.
The store called the Pennsylvania Game Commission, which arrived and removed the deer. There's no word on where the deer was released.
