Proof that the day after Christmas at retail stores is sometimes as nutty as the days before the holiday: a deer was tackled after charging into a Dick’s Sporting Goods store near Reading , Pa. on Thursday afternoon.
The deer was apparently injured and bleeding before it ran into the Dick’s location west of Reading. Once the animal began thrashing around inside the store, a man tackled the deer.

It seems as though the deer was held at Dick’s until authorities arrived. We’ll update when we know the condition of the deer and other details… like “what was that friggin’ guy thinking when he tackled the deer?” and “does the dude even work at the store?”
