Bambi runs amok in coffee house
Frustrated in her attempt to get service, the doe overturned a table and attempted to leap out a picture window into a meadow below.
Fortunately the window glass was sturdy enough to keep the deer from repeating her earlier leap.
Ellen Wright, an employee of the Winter Sun next door to the Cafe del Sol, heard the deer smash the door and described it as sounding like a train wreck. When Ellen stepped into the Cafe, the panicked doe was scrambling on the slippery hardwood floor and lunging at the window in an effort to escape.
After leaving hoof and nose prints on the window, the deer dashed about the coffee shop and exited by leaping through the front door.
The resourceful staff at the Cafe del Sol have cleaned up the damage and business has returned to normal.
