  3/17/13 @ 12:12 pm

On Saturday night at 9:17 pm, Penn Yan Police responded to the Kwik Fill at 2227 Lake Street in the Village of Penn Yan for a report of a deer in the store. A deer had crashed through a window and was inside the store doing damage.

Officers arrived to find store employees outside. They said that a vehicle traveling east on Lake Street had struck the deer causing it to run towards the store and jump through a front window. While inside, the deer injured itself trying to escape.

Officers entered thr store and subdued the deer by deploying a taser. After being brought under control, the deer was dragged outside where it was released.

The deer apparently suffered minor injury due to the ordeal but was able to flee the area on its own power.

A check of the store revealed that the deer had tipped over several displays and left blood on the floors and cooler.

The incident was captured by in-store surveillance cameras.

In October of 2011, a similar incident occured at the offices of the Messenger Post in Canandaigua. Watch a video here.
