What did area seniors do to incur the wrath of Brainerd's deer population?
For the second time in a little more than a month a deer has crashed into a Brainerd senior residence, breaking windows, but not harming anyone.
Dianne Kuoppala, a resident at Laestadian Manor at 1501 S. Eighth St., and the wife of manager Reino Kuoppala, said a deer crashed in through a hallway window, rushed around and then quickly crashed its way through a door window to freedom at about 3:45 p.m. Monday.
She reported considerable hollering among residents when the deer entered the home.
"They're still all excited about it. It got everybody's blood pressure up."
On Easter Sunday (April 12), a deer crashed into a person's residence at Good Samaritan Society-Woodland in Brainerd. The deer left on its own that day.
Four years earlier, on Easter Sunday of 2005, Brainerd police had to escort a deer out of an apartment in the Good Samaritan Society-Woodland facility after it crashed into an occupied apartment and caused considerable damage to the residence.
In each of the three incidents no one was injured.
