Animal Watch: Man saves a buck at Wadena Walmart

WADENA, MN (WDAZ-TV) - Shoppers got quite a surprise when a deer made its way into a Walmart.

You can find just about anything at Walmart. But the superstore's hairiest guest has the whole town of Wadena talking, sharing, and screenshotting.

Deer don't normally shop at Walmart. Shoppers say the little deer's wild deal hunt was likely a search for a snack.

This is the time of year when young deer are left to fend for themselves. The confused animal must have wandered into the semi-rural supercenter.

Tom Grasswick, ironically from nearby Deer Creek, says he was just trying to save a few bucks when a little buck jumped right into the unsuspecting shopper. He says it was just instinct to subdue the hundred-pounder.

After tackling the young buck, Grasswick and a few others covered its eyes before letting it free outside.

After consulting with local law enforcement it appears Walmart has made some adjustments in their garden center door policies. It appears the deer won't become a repeat customer.
