This deer wasn't caught in the headlights. It was called on the carpet.

A Castle Shannon carpeting store has been cleaning up after the wild animal smashed into the store and ran amok Tuesday.

Jill Horvatic, an employee of Stout Carpeting, tells WPXI-TV that she hid while the animal ran around, crashing into displays and damaging other items.

Horvatic says, "I was shaking. I haven't felt like that ever in my life. For 20 minutes all I heard was banging and glass shattering. It was horrifying."

Police were able to get the deer out of the store before anybody got hurt.
