Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time! A deer mistakenly walked straight through the front doors of a sporting goods store, where hunters were shopping for bargains on bows. This deer may as well been wearing a target on its back in northeastern Pennsylvania, where deer archery hunting season is still open.

According to WFMZ-TV the deer walked through the front door of a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Reading on Thursday afternoon. You can see the full newscast here.

Store manager Brad Meyer says the deer slipped on the floor and a customer tackled it to the ground, preventing any injuries to customers or damage to the store.

The store called the Pennsylvania Game Commission, which arrived and removed the deer. There’s no word on where the deer was released.
