'Destruction Everywhere' As Deer Crashes Through Oklahoma Home: 'You Probably See More Blood Than You See Floor'

An Oklahoma family said their home was like a "murder scene" after a deer wreaked havoc after crashing through their storm door.

The deer crashed into Griff Henderson's home in Edmond, Oklahoma, through a storm door on Tuesday evening, KFOR reported.

Edmond Police said the deer broke in at around 6.45 p.m. at the home near Covell and Broadway, according to KOCO. Police said the deer tore its way through the living room, a closet, the bathroom and a bedroom.

Edmond Police spokeswoman Emily Ward told McClatchy news group that the six-point buck barricaded itself in a bedroom and when officers arrived, it had "taken refuge" in a closet before locking itself in a bathroom.

Henderson told KFOR the devastation caused by the deer was like "a bomb, an explosion, a crash."

He added: "I've never been in a murder scene before, but there was blood everywhere, destruction everywhere, our bathroom area, you probably see more blood than you do floor actually."

Thee officers from Edmond Police Department as well as animal services arrived at the home to rein in the deer.

Ward told KFOR there was a lot of "confusion and deliberation" about the best way to handle the deer as it "continued to run around this person's home, destroying their rooms."

Ward said officers managed to get the deer out of the property after an hour-and-a-half. It occurred after animal welfare officers said the best method was to tie rope around the deer's antlers and pull it out of the house.

Police said the deer was so severely injured that it had to be euthanized. "Once outside, it was obvious the deer was in bad shape bleeding from numerous cuts and possible other injuries and was unable to stay on its feet," Ward told McClatchy.

Edmond Police later shared a clip of the deer while in the bedroom on Facebook. It shows an officer shining a torch on the deer and repeating "come on" in a bid to get the animal out of the room.

"HOME INVASION IN EDMOND!" the department added in the post with the video. "Our officers faced a holiday intruder last night. We've said it once, we'll say it again, Christmas decorations should be put up AFTER Thanksgiving! Stay safe out there!"

Newsweek has contacted Edmond Police and Animal Services for further comment.
