Deer Crashes Through Janesville Motel

10/28/11 – Janesville Police helped remove a 170-pound deer that crashed into a motel yesterday morning. Witnesses saw the male deer run around a parking lot, strike cars outside a Target store, run across a highway, and then vault through a first-floor window at the Super-8 Motel. The room was empty at the time. Police guarded the door to keep the animal in the room while D-N-R personnel and veterinarians tranquilized it. The deer had minor injuries to its snout – and the D-N-R planned to release the animal at a wildlife area near Milton. Minor damage was reported to the motel room.
