According to a release from the Lufkin Police Department, this morning (6/6/19) around 6:10 a.m., police responded to the call of a burglary in progress in a subdivision off of FM 58. The homeowner (who has asked not to be identified) heard glass break and immediately hid in a closet.

An officer arrived on scene to find a front window shattered. He then heard someone moving around inside the home and called for backup.

Several officers arrived and formed an entry team. Upon making entry through the broken window, the lead officer rounded a corner and came face to face with one very frightened doe.

After several minutes of “deer wrangling” with kitchen chairs, officers shooed the doe out the front door.

No animals or officers were seriously injured in the incident (except minor cuts from the glass).
