Deer, pit bull battle in bathroom
RACINE, Wis. It was a battle between a deer and a pit bull in the bathroom of a Racine apartment. Both survived, although not unscathed.
The Falkners woke up to the sound of breaking glass yesterday.
A deer had crashed through a window in their apartment and ran into the bathroom. The Falkners locked the deer in the bathroom, but didn't realize until later that their pit bull Shadow was also in the bathroom.
The deer kicked on the water, flooding the apartment, and knocked the dog unconscious.
Police arrived and were able to get the dog out of the bathroom. D-N-R wardens tranquilized the doe and took it away.
Shadow suffered eye injuries, but otherwise was O-K.
Jerry Falkner says their apartment may be damaged, but it could have been worse because the deer could have gone into their kids' bedroom. The children, ages five and six, were asleep when the doe visited.
