Deer surprises New Boston homeowners, crashes through windows
NEW BOSTON - Imagine you're sitting down to check your email in the kitchen and you hear glass shatter just feet away. The next thing you know, there's a deer laying at your feet. It happened at a home High Street in New Boston Wednesday night.
The Fitzpatricks had just ordered dinner when a deer came crashing through their window. They chased the animal around for at least six minutes before it finally crashed out a front window.
Before it escaped, it left hair and blood all over the house. But how did this happen? Angela Fitzpatrick says there are a few theories, one that's much scarier than the first.
"It possibly got spooked by a car in the road and did that famous deer jump. Or it was being chased by coyotes. I didn't hear any coyotes, but I've heard them around town," Fitzpatrick said.
The Fitzpatricks say the deer had some injuries but was well enough to run off. They will meetwith the insurance company next week to see if the damage will be covered. Angela says sitting in the kitchen still feels strange knowing a deer landed just inches away from her.
