EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) _ The damage is estimated at $10,000 after a deer wandered into an Emporia jewelry store and panicked before dying of fright.
KVOE-AM reports the deer was one of several that were spotted in the city on Saturday. On Commercial Street, the doe activated an automatic door entry at Stanley Jewelry and calmly walked inside.
Employees said the deer wandered toward the back of the store and become agitated at the sight of itself in a mirror. The deer destroyed an expensive china display, along with glassware and the mirror.
The animal quickly collapsed and died of stress. The rest of the deer left town within an hour.
