UPDATE: $5,500 in damage from deer that crashed through window


Menomonie (Press Release) – A deer that crashed through a window at the University of Wisconsin-Stout Vocational Rehabilitation building shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday caused an estimated $5,500 in damages, according to university officials.

That estimate includes repairing the window and cleaning up the blood trail left by the deer on the ground floor of the building.  The university hired Steamatic for the cleanup.

Authorities said the deer crashed through the window on the east of the building about 4:10 p.m. after being chased by a dog.  The deer exited the building through the automatic doors on the south side of the building.

The window has been boarded up until workers can fit a new piece of glass.

Authorities tracked the deer as it ran in a southerly direction through campus, but the blood trail ended, and the deer was not located.


Menomonie (WQOW) - A dog, a deer and a window prove to be a messy mix in Menomonie.

Late Wednesday afternoon, a dog chased a deer around UW-Stout's campus.  The chase led to the Vocational Rehabilitation building where the deer jumped right through a window.  "(It) ran around the building and there was blood on the floor and some windows.  Literally, it came out some sliding doors on the street where we're at here, ran through campus and was never found," said Doug Mell, UW-Stout executive director of communications and external relations.

No one was hurt.  Crews spent time Wednesday night cleaning up the mess.
