    Animal Jumped Into Apartment After Crossing Road

    POSTED: 11:26 am CST December 31, 2009
    UPDATED: 11:32 am CST December 31, 2009

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- An Iowa woman used a vacuum cleaner and a garbage can to fight off a deer Thursday morning that jumped into her apartment.

    Des Moines animal control Officer Cindy Alley told KCCI-TV that a deer crossing Hickman Road was startled by cars and ran into an apartment complex, then jumped through a large window.

    The scared deer then demolished the inside of the apartment as it attempted to find a way out. Trapped in the kitchen was the apartment resident, who fought off the deer with a garbage can and vacuum.

    Alley said the woman suffered minor injuries in the incident.

    A door to the apartment was eventually opened and the deer ran out. Alley said the startled animal took off and appeared to be OK.

    "First time I've heard of this happening," Alley said.

    The apartment resident declined to talk about what happened.

    A vacuum cleaner seems to be kriptonite to animals, my rottweiler will not walk within 10 feet of one. If we put his food bowl on it he would starve before he went near it.

    I'd have shot it. But it's been a tough season around here. MMMM venison.
