Customer tackles deer which wandered into Walmart

A confused white-tailed deer that wandered into a Walmart shop in Minnesota ran into a startled customer who tackled the animal to the ground.

Shoppers at the store in Wadena, 240 kilometres (150 miles) north west of Minneapolis, speculated that the young animal was searching for a snack when it entered the shop through the garden centre doors.

Tom Grasswick, who happens to live in Deer Creek, told WDAY-TV that he felt like someone had hit him when the deer slammed into him.

Mr Grasswick said his first instinct was to tackle the animal, bringing it down on a pallet of dog food.

He covered the deer's eyes to calm it down and he and others took the animal outside and set it free.
