Deer ‘breaks into bank’: CCTV video shows the dramatic moment animal smashes through a bank window

The deer was eventually able to escape the bank with the help of police and animal control officers.

CCTV footage shows the moment a confused deer smashed through the window of a bank.

In the video, the deer can be seen running towards a window at the bank before smashing through it as shards of glass scatter across the room. Later in the footage, routes back into the building have been blocked off to the deer by an animal control officer, with another officer following behind the animal as it runs back into the room and out of the building.
