A Des Moines family got a surprise visitor Friday afternoon.
“We were just relaxing sitting downstairs watching TV, then we heard a bang, and a deer ran through my window," Anthony Sananikone says.
The unwelcome guest smashed its way into the home at around 1 p.m. The family ran out the window and tried to direct the deer to get out.
“Wow how does this happen? How does a deer just jump into the window? So we hopped out the window and it was crazy,” Anthony Savatdy adds.
The deer ran through the house and eventually ran out the window again with some pieces of the house on his antlers.
The family says the deer was an eight or 10 point buck. The two cousins had a few cuts but no major injuries.
