MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities at the University of Wisconsin-Stout say a deer crashed through a window into a building this week, causing about $5,500 in damage. One staffer was bruised when he jumped out of its way, but no one was seriously hurt.

Officials at the Menomonie school say the eight-point buck was being chased by a dog Wednesday afternoon when it jumped through a window of the Vocational Rehabilitation building. The deer scrambled down a hallway before running back outside through a set of automatic doors.

Stout spokesman Doug Mell says authorities tried to track it as it ran through campus but they lost it when the blood trail ended.

He says there was a lot of blood. The damage estimate includes the cost of cleaning the blood and repairing the window.
