BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) -- A young deer, 1
apparently frightened by traffic, ignored the "No
Pets" sign and crashed through the front window
of a pizza parlor.
The animal slammed its nose through the window
of Captain's Pizza on Main Street one recent night
and cut itself on broken glass, but the injuries were
minor and the deer was later released into the
woods in Easton, said Beardsley Zoo Director
Police were summoned by an alarm that went off
after the deer broke the window early in the morning.
They said the deer tried in vain to escape from the
pizza parlor, which had closed for the night. Dancho
arrived with a tranquilizer gun and net to help '
release the young buck.
He said the animal may have been fleeing from a
car and "the store just happened to be in the way."
Dancho said calls about wild animals, including
deer and foxes, popping up around the city have
