Deer wanders into Walmart, finds floor too slippery

Steven Adams

A young doe had some trouble walking after it strolled through the front door of a Walmart.

The deer on Wednesday entered the store in Wooster, Ohio’s North End but quickly found the tile floor too slippery to browse the aisles, reports the Daily Record.

Shopper Bert Moore shared video of the incident on Facebook.

“You could hear it kicking shelves as it went through the store,” Moore told the Daily Record.

Another bystander suggested Moore stop recording video and try to help the deer.

“You could tell it was going to hurt itself or somebody else,” Moore told the Daily Record.

Moore grabbed the tiring doe around the neck and held it still until others could help get the animal out the back door.

“It was pretty neat to see the deer get up and walk away and know it was unharmed,” Moore told the Daily Record. “That’s a good feeling.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
