Not a joke: A deer walks into a MN fur company and trashes the place

This deer should get a part in the next Avengers movie.

A deer stormed into a Minnesota fur company, head-butted the owner and trashed the place before taking off.

It sounds like a joke, but this really happened at Johnson Fur last week in Willmar – owner Scott Johnson shared the crazy ordeal with Inforum.

Johnson told the paper that around 4 p.m. Wednesday, he heard an employee shouting and came out of his office to see a buck coming right at him. (The door had been left wide open because it was a nice day.)

The six-pointer rammed Johnson in the ribs before tearing the place apart, jumping on tables and messing up piles of paperwork.

“He proceeded to make mischief of it,’’ Johnson said.

Luckily no one was hurt, including the deer. You can read the whole story here.

Hilariously, this isn't the first time a deer has "broken into" a Willmar business. Earlier this year, a deer was responsible for a break-in at a nursing home there.
