A 10-point buck sought sanctuary inside a southern Michigan church on opening day of the state’s firearm deer hunting season.
Pastors at Grace Sturgis encountered the buck inside the church’s auditorium on Monday before it leapt through a window and back into the wild.
A video the church posted on Facebook shows the buck wandering around the church. Pastors Amanda and Luke Eicher and Justin Wickey erected barricades in a hallway to try to keep the animal from the rest of the church. At one point, it climbed stairs to a balcony.
The buck didn’t appear to have any gunshot wounds and was bleeding just a bit from what appeared to be cuts from the glass. Besides the broken window, the only other damage was blood stains on the carpet. （AP）
