A deer who wandered into a Walmart store in Wisconsin was tackled to the ground by an employee and the video of the incident is now making the rounds on social media.
The video shows the fearless employee pinning the animal to the ground. The incident happened on June 23 in Baraboo.
According to 6Abc News, the deer was tackled so that it wouldn’t run through the aisles. Though the animal tried to wriggle out of the grip, the employee managed to restrain the deer till other staff members opened a back door for its exit. As per local reports, both the employee and the deer did not sustain injuries.

This made me cry. Such a good kind person to do this. Thank you for helping that poor scared deer. We have moved into their homes and taken their land, they are afraid and hungry. This was amazing.

This was not the first time a deer was spotted inside a store. Days ago, another deer made its way inside a grocery store, in Atlanta, Georgia. Employees reportedly had to call the fire department to get the animal out of the store.
