HOUSTON, April 21 (UPI) -- A deer crashed through an office window at a Houston business and the animal's ordeal, as well as its capture by a game warden, were live-streamed on Facebook.

The deer crashed through a picture window at the Connect One Alarm Company Wednesday evening in west Houston and the business shared photos on Facebook of the confused animal appearing trapped in the office.


Steve Campion, a reporter for KTRK-TV, arrived on the scene and live-streamed the deer's capture by a game warden on Facebook.

A worker in the office told Campion that employees initially believed someone was breaking into the business before they found the animal inside the office.

The deer attempts to jump back out of the window when confronted by the game warden, but it seems unable to find the hole it created when it entered.

The game warden was able to subdue the deer and bind its feet for safe transport.

Game warden Mark Bane said the deer broke an antler breaking through the window, but was released outside and is expected to recover.


Bane said deer sometimes jump through windows when they mistake their reflections for rivals.
