Deer jumps from trunk, surprises police

KALAMAZOO, Mich., March 20 (UPI) -- Police investigating a suspicious vehicle in Michigan said a deer jumped out of the trunk while they were speaking to the driver.

Kalamazoo Public Safety said officers noticed a man sitting in his car at the Red Roof Inn in Kalamazoo at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and spoke to the driver, who said there was a dead deer in his trunk, WWMT-TV, Kalamazoo, reported Wednesday.

The man told officers he had struck the deer with his car and decided to take it home to prepare it as food.

However, while the man was speaking to the officers, the deer regained consciousness and jumped out of the trunk.

"The officer was certainly surprised," Lt. Stacey Geik said. "One held his ground better than the other as the video indicated."

The deer did not end up as anyone's dinner, Geik said.

Geik said deer collisions are common in the area.

"If the driver wants to, they can ask for what's called a salvages permit to be able to take the deer for human consumption," Geik said.

This one certainly wasn't prepared to become food, however, as it seems the deer had only been knocked out when it was loaded into the car.
