Deer jumps through window of Pentwater home.


PENTWATER — A deer crashed through the window of a home in the 300 block of North Hancock Street Sunday evening, Oct. 15, according to the Pentwater Police Department’s Facebook page.

The police department provided a humorous narrative of what transpired, but reminded residents how destructive deer can be.

The following is PPD’s Facebook post:

“On Oct. 15, 2017 at approximately 7:30 p.m., officers from the Pentwater Police responded to a report of deer inside a house in the 300 block of North Hancock. Upon their arrival, the officers discovered one white tail suspect inside the residence. The suspect deer had jumped through a window to gain entry into the home.

“Officers immediately began negotiations, and the deer left a short time later through a side door. There were several items disturbed in the house and one broken window. Nothing has been reported stolen, and the deer remains at large.

“While this may seem humorous, residents should not underestimate the amount of property damage that can be caused by deer. As we move from summer to fall, deer will become more active during the early morning and evening hours.

Pentwater Police want to take this opportunity to caution citizens to be alert for deer when driving and take appropriate action to avoid collisions with deer if possible. Slow down during high risk time and be on the lookout for deer crossing the road.”
