Oh, deer: Startled doe scrambles through Mississippi school

ENTERPRISE -- A deer darted through two hallways of a Mississippi school, startling students as they were arriving for the day. 

 

People jumped out of the way and no one was injured. 

 

Enterprise Middle School is in a rural, wooded area about 100 miles east of Jackson. Principal Marlon Brannan says it's unusual to see deer on campus, but this doe was grazing on a playground Wednesday morning. 

 

He says the doe bloodied its nose by jumping and hitting a window three times; it then ran through an open door. 

 

Brannan says "that deer was moving full-throttle" as it scrambled down two tile hallways, going about 200 feet before sliding out another open door. It ran between two vehicles in the carpool line and escaped to the woods.
