A man was butted by an unexpected assailant while shopping at his local supermarket in a Stockholm suburb on Friday - a roebuck deer.
"I was caught unawares when the roebuck suddenly came at me," Anders Östeberg said to Aftonbladet of his meeting with the deer at a Coop store in Liljeholmen in southern Stockholm.
It is thought that the deer sneaked into the building when the loading bay was left open in connection with a delivery.
The frightened deer ran into the store and Östberg was unfortunate to be in the rampaging animal's path.
The deer butted Östberg on the arm, before a fellow customer managed to detain the wild animal in a strangle hold before escorting him from the store.
Luckily for Anders Östberg the deer had hide covering his otherwise razor sharp horns and he therefore managed to escape his close encounter with only minor bruising and an unusual story to tell his friends.
Shopping in Stockholm has become downright insane.
I prefer the Oxford Street pickpockets and the gypsies of Rome to this mess.
Trust me, the Animal Kingdom will hear from our lawyers!
Perhaps he was looking for directions to a Sears store.
Don't butt me bro.!!!!
At least it wasn’t a moose.
Moose bites can be pretti nasti.
“Perhaps he was looking for directions to a Sears store.”
- Is Sears still around?
A friend of mine told me Wal-Mart has competed away most other companies in their business.
Deer have "razor sharp horns"? Since when?
Maybe he was just looking for some John Deere products:)
NOW can we be allowed to hunt deer?
Yes, Sears is still around. I don’t buy anything there since I got rid of the vacuum cleaner that needed “R” bags and “OO” belts - and anyway, I can order from Hoover.com with much less trouble - but someone must shop there for something.
I hate when that happens....
Sears is still doing pretty well around these parts (northern New England). I’ll be getting myself a new lawnmower there in a few weeks.
“Yes, Sears is still around.”
- Nice to know.
Speaking of Wal-mart, I’m not overly impressed by their prices (I’ve checked them out a bit on the Internet).
My country, Sweden, boasts a lot of stores that could compete with Wal-Mart prices despite the 25% VAT we pay upon the “actual” prices we pay.
But perhaps there are stores in the US that too could compete with what Wal-Mart has on offer?
No doubt a Laplander.
Religion of peace?
Whether you get the best price at Wal-mart depends on what you’re buying and when ... just like any other store. For example, their clothes are inexpensive, especially basic items like young children’s pants and shirts. However, they don’t last. Some people want better quality, and will go elsewhere and pay more. Others (like me) find that the children destroy the clothes no matter what you spent on them, so you might as well get the cheapest.
You can often find appliances for less, if you look around. On the other hand, most stores don’t even have toilet paper in packages of 48 rolls. Wal-mart has the best price on frozen pizza. For shoes, there’s often a better price/selection at PayLess.
