JACKSON, Miss. (CNN/WAPT) - Workers at a Mississippi business got a break-in they didn't expect.
It was a wild start to the day for employees inside the Jackson business.
"The last thing you expect to do is come to work and find a large deer standing behind your desk," said Margie Purvis, who found the deer.
The deer crashed through a double-paned window and found his way to the breakroom, where employees locked him in.
The 80-pound spike was clearly not happy with the room layout, knocking over tables and chairs and even trying to leap on top of cabinets to escape.
Employees stayed at bay until animal control arrived, but even they were caught off guard with the big deer.
After a few minutes of planning, an animal control officer went in and eventually came out with the bloody and tired deer.
As animal control led the deer to freedom outside, employees inside examined the damage left behind.
"He trashed it," said Richard Lingle, who helped catch the deer. "We definitely need a paint job and a carpet cleaner."
Workers said they may never know why the deer decided to crash into their workplace.
"The deer could have been chased by something and ran through the glass, or he could have seen himself and wanted to fight. I mean, you don't know," said Lingle.
Animal control officials said the deer had a few cuts from his run-in with the window. However, they expect him to make a full recovery back out in the woods.
