“I mean frightened animals in cornered spaces is something I would not want to personally deal with,” one shopper said.

The deer was ramming its head into a mirror in the home goods aisle before a male and female grab the deer, hold it down and try to calm it.

The store was temporarily evacuated Saturday as staff worked to capture the deer before any injuries occurred.

Miami County dispatchers received seven calls about the animal.
