Staff at St. Brieux School in Saskatchewan had an unexpected after school visitor Wednesday. A young deer crashed through the window of a Grade 5 classroom around 5 p.m. CT.
The deer, nicknamed “Lucy” by staff, only had a few cuts from the broken glass but was otherwise in good health. Conservation officers were able to tranquillize the deer before she was released.
Director of education for the Horizon School Division, Kevin Garinger, is thankful there were no students in school at the time of the incident. He also notes that thanks to the quick work of school and division staff as well as the area conservation officers the deer was out of the school within an hour and the classroom was ready for students the following morning.
