Aug. 9 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin police department shared dashboard camera footage of an "athletic" deer that survived colliding with a police cruiser by doing a back flip over the hood.
The Stanley Police Department posted a video to Facebook on Tuesday showing dash cam footage of a deer running past the front of a police cruiser.
A second deer following close behind ends up colliding with the car and doing a back flip over the hood.
The department said the deer did not appear to be injured.
"Turns out that deer are more athletic than one might think," the post said.
"Judge for yourself but we think this double salto has the execution, artistry and difficulty that would make any gymnastics coach proud.
We are happy to report that the featured furry friend in our dash camera video was able to scamper off under its own power after this run-in (pun intended) with one of our squad cars last evening.
Oh and thank you to Katy Perry for the background vocals...'Wide Awake'seems quite fitting!"
