Deer Breaks Into UIS Apartment
At 3 a.m. when you hear glass breaking and a ruckus in your home, you may think you're being robbed. That's what a UIS student thought when this happened in his campus apartment last Wednesday.
But when Dane Vincent went to see what was happening, he was surprised to find that it was not a person in his home, but a deer. The deer jumped through his window into the apartment.
The apartment floor is made of linoleum, so Vincent walked in to see the deer slipping and trying to regain his balance. Shortly after, the deer turned and jumped out of another window, leaving the apartment.
"I never expected to come downstairs and find a deer. I know we have a lot of them on campus and they're pretty prevalent. So, I never expected them to come this close to a house," said Vincent.
Vincent said that two of his windows were broken.
He also said that according to the university, this is the first time something like this has happened.
