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.

    Aww poor deer!!!. He must have been totally freaked out. Glad no one was hurt, but I feel bad he had to die that way. Almost hit one the other night, suckers are everywhere this year.

    A deer trapped and hiding in a stairwell. Nicely done cops……another proud moment for the police. Is there anything they won’t decide it’s ok to shoot? People built those buildings and raised that deer chasing dog. It’s time some responsibility is taken for things rather than killing them and then calling it “safety”. You do the hard work of being better instead of taking the easy way out. That’s progress.

    Had the deer been released, it would’ve probably been shot this weekend any way. Hopefully they harvest the meat and send it to local shelters.

    The coward Saint Paul Police Department only know how to drink and sleep on duty…their cowardice and impatience in this situation doesn’t surprise me. How do I know this? I was one (for a very short time for good reason).

    “Police were worried the deer would get loose again and threaten students…”

    Threatened by a deer? Wow. The police should be ashamed of themselves. Stuff like this makes me think that maybe cops really are stupid and trigger-happy. Pretty scary thought.

    the dog is what caused the problem…. dnr woulda shot the dog if they saw it chasing the big game…. how hard would have it been to let the deer sit in the stair welll and wait for animal control to tranquilize it… and find that dog and shoot it!
