LUFKIN, Texas — Police who surrounded a house in eastern Texas because they thought they had a burglary in progress found a deer instead.
The homeowner called Lufkin police early Thursday after she heard glass breaking. The woman hid in a closet and realized she had left her weapon in the kitchen. Officers were worried it could end up in the hands of the suspect.
An officer shouted "It's a deer! It's a deer! It's a deer!"
The officers used chairs to shoo the deer out the door.
