'Dead' deer jumps, trunk video: Kalamazoo, Michigan police get surprise when deer escapes car trunk


KALAMAZOO, Mich. - A "dead" deer wasn't as dead as initially believed and some police officers got a very big surprise when they opened a car trunk in Kalamazoo, Michigan,  WMMT reports .

It all started when police noticed a man sitting in his car behind the red roof in.

When police walked up to the car to inspect, the man hit the trunk release and stated that he had a dead deer in trunk.

The man explained he had hit the deer, assumed he killed it, and put it in the trunk to take home for dinner. What he didn't know was the deer had other plans, leaping out of the trunk.

The deer was apparently only knocked out when he was loaded into the car and was very much alive, running away unscathed.
