This deer definitely won’t be leading Santa’s sleigh any time soon.

On Wednesday, footage showed an overly excited deer crashing into the windows of a Massachusetts health and wellness store. Hempire in Amesbury is a CBD store that sells a variety of calming aids and hemp-related products. While they do sell animal CBD products, the staff rarely ever sees any hooved customers – until this week.

Late at night, a buck was following a doe across Friend Street. The doe suddenly crashed through the store’s back window before plunging through the front just seconds later.

Amazingly, the deer didn’t sustain too serious of injuries.

“I just want you to know that the deer made it back into the woods safe and unharmed,” Hempire’s general manager, Gina Faro reported, according to the New York Post.

After surveying the incident, Acting Police Chief Craig Bailey was also confident that the animal made a relatively safe escape.

“There was some hair and blood at the scene, but there was nothing to indicate that the deer was going to go down for the count,” Bailey said.

Massachusetts Store Owner Gets a Surprise Call

When store owner Kirby Mastrangelo first received the call from police about the incident, she didn’t believe it was real.

“I thought it was a prank call,” Mastrangelo said. “I thought maybe that it was a radio show or something. You know, it’s Christmas and there is a deer coming into my store to go shopping.”

And to be fair, that’s not an unlikely possibility.

“But then the officer said, ‘Ma’am, this really happened and we will have some people on standby there until you get down here,’” she continued.

And sure enough, she raced down to her store.

After reviewing the footage, Mastrangelo explained that the two deer were running through the street before the doe took a rogue turn. Thankfully, the buck didn’t follow her lead. Instead, he doubled back, probably frightened by the crash.

“There was a buck that was following the doe and he turned around when he saw her jump through the window,” Mastrangelo continued. “The doe kind of ran around the back of the store a little bit and then headed to the exit in the front and she just dove right through the front door.”

While there was a good bit of damage from the two shattered window panes, the deer didn’t cause any damage to the merchandise – or ingest any for that matter. Ironically, though, the medicinal hemp products might have helped her out after the accident.

“There’s no animal CBD missing, so she didn’t take anything on her way out,” Mastrangelo joked. “But it might have been good for her. It could help her recovery.”
