After becoming disoriented and wandering into the city of Moorhead, Minn., over the weekend, a herd of deer panicked and crashed into windows and doors at the local mall, police said.

They got disoriented by the mall. I know exactly how they felt.
Whitetail deer kill more Americans than any other species. They currently exceed muslim terrorists in this endeavour as well...
Ah that proves there are rednecks in Minnesota! (Honey you won't believe the road kill I harvested today!)
We're just being good stewards of the Earth, doncha know.
What, thats not normal? Isn't that pretty much the law in... Alaska (or donate to food bank)??
Deer are like rabbits down there
what, you no longer eat cheese? not even the low fat kind?
I earned my master's degree at Minnesota State University in Moorhead. This is hunting and fishing country. The attitude up there is that the deer help themselves to our grain fields; we help ourselves to the deer.
If it is said that 94% of Minnesotans like to fish, then we ask what is wrong with the other 6%.
Well, maybe a little. But don’t tell my cardiologist.
somebody’s got to have a video.
I’ve personally never had deerburger (I’m more of a Kentucky redneck), but I’ve heard it’s good.
Where I live, it’s a virtual race to be the one who nabs the freshly hit deer off the road, especially in the winter.
If it’s not smashed up and hasn’t laid around long, it’s edible.
I’ve seen fresh kills on the mountain coming back from town and sped home to get a plastic bag to spread on the Yukon’s floor and gone back to find my “free 100 pounds of dog food” already gone in less than 5 minutes.
Dogs gotta eat, same as buzzards.
And then to a movie?
Aw, dammit! Now you've got me thinking about how much I want a six-pack of real beer (not this O'doul's swill), and some deep-fried cheese curds, and then after that a nice fat stogie!
Sounds like a case of poor leadership.
Bwaahhhahhah! Oh, that’s just wrong.
This is for you vegans who are way too trusting......
Ground venison tends to be a bit on the dry side for most people. The steaks and tenderloins are best when marinated for a few hours and then cooked on the grill, but I prefer to use the ground venison in chili, or mix it about 50/50 with ground pork to make sausage.
I suppose that’s the best they can do without alligators.
Funniest thing: every now and then you'll see a roadkilled deer carcass on the side of the highway that looks a little strange at first, and when you get a closer look, you realize it's because the head is missing. All you can think is that someone drove by, spotted the set of antlers on the roadkill, and said, "I have got to have those!"
Gotta say that 6 deer do not a “herd” make, not around here anyway. But definitely have hit several, and every time I went back to pick up the carcass.... it was gone— rapidly. Country people— resourceful, fast people that don’t waste a thing.
Awwwww! *dialing PETA now*
Metaphor for the democrats trying to unseat walker. Wandered into reality, created some havoc, but still just a bunch of dumb deer.
Well there’s always the example of that old French lady who made it into her hundred-and-teens drinking a glass of Chianti every day. Anything can be overdone I suppose. Bake the cheese instead of frying it?
“Deer are like rabbits down there”
...until the recently-introduced non-native invasive wolf species moves in...
oh nooooooooo.... LOLOL!! OK, Camo Shark, I have to go get my beauty sleep to face all the evil tomorrow (if I can fall asleep since my ribs hurt from laughing so much, Sharky’s fault)... Talk to you soon!
And watch what you're saying about Nancy-boys in the Twin Cities...there are women folk down here named Nancy who have boys!
And they play hockey, too.
Globull warming is causing the deer to crash into the racist SUV’s now?
It's a Romney thing, you wouldn't understand.
Worse. It was a stag movie.
Getting an early start on the Memorial Day sales?
Ohhhhhh! You are right. That’s too complex. ;)
I get disoriented every time I hear “dear, lets’s go to the mall”. Coinkydink? I think not.
Herd of Deer? Yes I’ve heard of deer!
I see those on the interstate.
On the back road, the buck follows fairly late after the does cross so they’re least likely to get hit.
On the interstate, there’s so much traffic that their odds are not so good.
Sometimes you see the “fur puddle deer” headless.
That takes a pretty strong stomach.
Take the ground venison, a gob of -real- butter, some garlic, mix thoroughly and grill/fry.
Food of the gods.
(I did you a favor and skipped over the H.G. Wells version.)
Just the deer version of fish jumping into boats...
“Another was accidentally run over by a minivan nearby. According to WDAY-TV, the driver took the dead deer home for dinner.”
Mmm, mmmm, mmm!
When I was living in Minnesota, the farmers called whitetails "rats with antlers." Very destructive animals.
Moral of the story: Keep plastic covering the Yukon’s floor in preparation for “Free 100 pounds of Dog Food” moments.
