A 10-point buck sought sanctuary inside a southern Michigan church on opening day of the state’s firearm deer hunting season.

一隻10叉角的雄鹿在密西根州槍枝獵鹿季開跑日,躲進了該州南部一間教堂。

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.

斯特吉斯感恩堂的牧師們週一在教會的禮堂撞見這隻雄鹿,之後牠跳過窗戶回到荒野。

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.

教會貼上臉書的一段影片顯示,該頭雄鹿在教堂附近徘徊。牧師阿曼達和路克.艾徹以及賈斯汀.威基在門廳架起障礙物,試圖阻止這隻動物進到教堂其他區域。牠一度爬上通往一處陽台的樓梯。

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)

這隻雄鹿看來沒受到任何槍傷,只有流點血,似乎是玻璃割傷。除了那扇破掉的窗戶,地毯上的血跡是其他惟一損壞的部分。(美聯社)
