Watch: Deer smashes up restaurant in Grand Rapids

It gave workers and police quite a scare.
Author:

A deer left behind quite a mess after finding itself stuck in an under-construction Minnesota restaurant.

Footage shared by the Grand Rapids Police Department shows the deer loose in the Ground Round Bar and Grill off of South Pokegama Avenue.

The video starts by showing the animal in one of the bathrooms, with smashing sounds following shortly thereafter.

The deer then heads out into the main room of the restaurant, trying to leap throw windows in an attempt to get out, before eventually finding the door.

The Grand Rapids Police Department told FOX 9 there were a few construction workers inside when the deer just "moseyed right in."
