Deer Breaks Into Indiana Home And Takes A Bath

Perhaps he didn't get enough "drip drip drop little April showers" because Bambi really wanted a bath.

A deer broke through the window of the front door of a home in northeastern Indiana and somehow managed to take a bath, running water and all. writes:

It apparently went straight into a bathroom, managed to kick the door closed and then jumped into the bathtub. At some point, the deer had managed to turn the water on in the tub.


The three officers entered the residence, and Weicht said when they opened the bathroom door, the deer was laying in the tub that was by then filled with water. Only the deer’s head was visible.

Sadly this story doesn't have a happy ending. The deer was still breathing when it was removed from the tub, but it died shortly after being tased and pulled from the home, probably because it had cuts on its neck and chest.
