Deer Breaks into Hair Salon, Trashes the Place

You think I'm joking, don't you?  This isn't Sunday and it isn't a Sunday Funny.  It could be, but it isn't.

In one of those "only in Kentucky" moments, Sunday, May 23, 2010 a deer jumped through the front glass of the Choppers Hair Salon in Benton, Kentucky (Benton is about 28 miles southeast of Paducah, Kentucky).  Apparently, the receptionist was in the bathroom and the deer saw that as its chance.  People in the salon thought the place was being robbed but they were astonished to see a deer in the salon instead.

For about 20 minutes the deer ran wild in the salon damaging the floors, breaking water lines and damaging salon product before leaving.  None of the shops occupants were injured but the deer was.  The animal was cut on the window glass and left blood and hair behind.

There are currently no damage figures available but expectations are in the thousands of dollars.

I guess the deer couldn't get an appointment so he had to take matters into his own hands, er, hooves.

Read the article from WPSD-TV in Paducah, KY for more information and to see a photo from the inside of the hair salon.

This reminds me of a story from 2007 where a coyote wandered into a Loop Sandwich Shop in Chicago, Illinois and spent some time in the drinks cooler.  I loved this story when it was on the news.  You can read more about it and see video at the cbs2chicago.com site or at MSNBC.com.  You can bet that when I come across more "animal funnies" like this, I will surely be blogging about them.
