HOUMA, La. — A Louisiana family said their house was trashed by a full-grown deer that crashed through a glass door.

The rampaging buck created chaos for close to a half hour Friday while trying to get out of the house in Houma, about 50 miles southwest of new Orleans. It smashed belongings, upended furniture and chased the women and child inside before it was shot and killed by a deputy.

Linda Babin, a 60-year-old employee of the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office, said she’s shocked by the damage and terror the deer inflicted at her home. She said her house looks like a crime scene after the deer’s home-invasion.

Authorities speculate that the 200-pound buck may have thought its reflection in the sliding-glass storm door was another animal.
