Deer jumps through hotel window


Eau Claire (WQOW)- A local hotel had an unexpected visitor on Sunday, a deer!

A driver on Highway 37 called the Clarion Hotel in Eau Claire to tell them that they saw a deer crash through one of the hotel windows.

Sure enough, when staff checked it out there was no deer to be found; but quite a mess. A broken window, broken mirrors, picture frames and blood-stained carpet.

The hotel's maintenance crew said the deer broke into one of four meeting rooms. They're not sure how much clean-up will cost but are thankful no one was hurt.

Eau Claire Police said a short while later, a homeowner on West Hamilton Avenue reported that a deer ran through a window and then dashed off. Police suspect it could have been the same deer.
