Video: Deer jumps through frozen yoghurt shop window

Updated: 



A startled deer was caught on CCTV camera smashing through the window of a frozen yoghurt shop in New Jersey.

The animal can be seen desperately sliding around the shop in a panic one evening in October before a member of staff manages to guide it back out.

Owner of the Peachwave Yoghurt Store Alan Prachar said the animal caused around $5,000 worth of damage, although seemed unharmed itself.

His daughter Jen said she was shutting up shop when the incident occurred, telling NBC News: "I just didn't expect it to come through here."

According to the Mirror, Alan added: "Both the lights were off in the store and I think perhaps he saw his reflection in the window."
