KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Police in Kalamazoo got quite the surprise when they opened up the trunk of a car Tuesday morning.
An officer on routine patrol noticed a suspicious person in the 3700 block of E. Cork Street at a hotel.
While talking to the man the officer's attention was drawn to the trunk area of the vehicle as the man unexpectedly hit the trunk release and stated: “I hit a deer, I figured you would want to see it.”
The driver claims he hit the deer with his car on a nearby roadway. He was hoping to have the meat to feed his family and put it in the trunk.
The deer jumped from the trunk and made a run for it to a nearby wooded area.
The man was at a loss for words since the deer was obviously not quite as dead as he thought it was.
