View Comments

ST. PAUL (WCCO) — People crash college parties all the time, but one recent college “crasher” surprised some students at St. Catherine University.

A deer managed to break through a window at the Coeur de Catherine building.

The six-point buck made his grand entrance around 6 p.m. Wednesday while classes were still in session.

Police shot and killed the deer before animal control authorities got there.

The deer had reportedly also broken through a wall and was hiding in a stairwell.

Police were worried the deer would get loose again and threaten students or cause more damage.

Students said the deer was being chased by a dog before it crashed through the window.
