Deer crashes through motel room window in Colorado Springs
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado ” Colorado Division of Wildlife officers have tranquilized a deer that crashed through the window of a Colorado Springs motel room.
Police say the deer hit the window and smashed through it at about 5 a.m. Friday at the Nevada Motel, in the 1000 block of South Nevada Avenue.
One man was inside the room at the time. He told a Colorado Springs television station he thought a rock had been thrown through the window, but soon realized it was a deer and corralled the animal into the bathroom.
The panicked deer destroyed the toilet and flooded the room.
The man says he’s a maintenance worker for the hotel, so he’ll have to repair the damage himself.
His name wasn’t released.
The deer was removed from the room and relocated.
A survey showed a good bit of support for local government action to bolster workforce housing in town. For now though, that support stops at supporting a new tax for funding.
