The cold snap that hit much of Ontario in late January was so intense it caused even wild deer to seek shelter.
In two separate instances just a day apart, deer were discovered inside buildings.
On Jan. 26, a white-tailed deer used a window to enter London’s Western University. It ended up in an office in Saugeen-Maitland Hall, one of the school’s residences and it took a coordinated effort from animal rescue groups to get the animal back outside unharmed.
On Jan. 28, Norfolk OPP responded to a report of a deer entering a home in Port Dover through a window. When police arrived, they found a white-tailed doe in a bedroom. Fortunately, with assistance from Hobbitstee Wildlife Rescue, police were able to chase the deer out a door.
