Deer break into Maryland school

Deer Break Into Maryland School
Books, pencils ... and some furry visitors? 'Fox & Friends' tells us more about some unexpected guests at a Maryland middle school.

'Students at a middle school near Washington, DC are back on schedule today after their building turned into a zoo. Police found three deer apparently chased into a school by a dog.'

Police officers were called to Southern Middle School around four in the morning Monday because the animals had tripped the burglary alarm. KLTV says what police found was startling.

'Police say one of the deer was found dead at the school, another had to be euthanized, and the third escaped.'

WJZ-TV says the incident caused a surprising amount of damage.

'Damage to the school was estimated between $3,000-5,000.'

Reports say the deer were chased by a couple of dogs. A German shepherd and a Labrador mix were both captured by Animal Control.

According to The Baltimore Sun, Animal Control currently has custody of both dogs, but their owners have been located.

WJLA spoke with a neighbor who points out the situation could've been worse.

'It could've happened at like seven in the morning when the kids were here, so at least they weren't here.'

Class was cancelled Monday so crews could fix up the damage. Students were able to return to the classroom on Tuesday.

The dog's owners should get a hefty fine for all the damage their dogs caused. Some pet owners are incredibly ignorant and irresponsible. They shouldn't have kids let alone pets!!

endmillll is absolutly right. This never would have happened if the owners had taken responsibilty for the dogs & not let them roam free where they could kill or be killed themselves. I certainly hope that you don't have a dog as you are clearly as big an idiot as the dog owners.

Totally agree !!! Why should carelessness of a dog owner/s, whom causes this damage, make the school system pay for repairs. The school budgets are tight enough.

Was the door unlocked or did they break through glass? How did they get into that building.

No mention of HOW they got into the building .. Did they run through a glass door (maybe that's why two of them were in such bad shape)?

Larry is exactly right. It happens in my neighborhood whenever the weather is nice or not too cold. My dog and I get attacked by dogs set loose, (literally I caught an owner red-handed). He said his dog never attacks anyone and it was the first time. Let a dog loose without supervision, they revert back the wild pack mentality and live it up!

Hilarious. The only idiot posting political crap about a "deer" is you. Also, you're posting it on Huffington Post. Could you be more stupid. (The answer is Yes, you can; clearly)

Dogs are from wolves. So this what would happen if humans where gone. And Dogs had to live on there own.
