Wadenna, MN – A confused white-tailed deer that wandered into a Wal-Mart store in Minnesota ran into a startled customer, who tackled the animal to the ground.

Shoppers at the store in Wadena (wah-DEE’-nah), 150 miles (240 kilometers) northwest of Minneapolis, speculated that the young animal was searching for a snack Tuesday when it entered the store through its garden center doors.

Tom Grasswick, who happens to live in Deer Creek, told WDAY-TV ( http://bit.ly/2q0NvFz ) that he felt as if someone had slugged him when the deer slammed into him. He said his first instinct was to tackle the animal, bringing it down on a pallet of dog food.

Grasswick covered the deer’s eyes to calm it down, and he and others took the animal outside and set it free.
