On Sunday morning, March 20, Tony Morgan and his wife were driving by the Red Oaks Shopping Center when they saw four deer going across the parking lot toward Blue Grass Electric. The deer decided to do a little shopping and all of them crashed through the plate glass window and went inside. Two of the deer came back out but the other two stayed inside. Barry Kyiser of the Department of Natural Resources was called to help. Barry was assisted by Dorsey Hylton, Kenneth Rudd and Wayne Pennington. Wayne said the deer did over $3000 worth of damage to offices and inventory. One deer was chased out the broken window but the other one had to be caught. It was quite a chase before the deer was subdued and tied up with phone cord. One of the deer received minor cuts but took off with the others.
