NICK EICHER, HOST: A couple up in New Brunswick in Canada returned home one day to find their front window broken. It looked like a robbery.

But it wasn’t. Audio here from CTV News.

That's homeowner Ray O'Donnell turns out his cat burglar was a white-tailed deer.

Ah, the forestry people. That’s the right call. These guys speak softly and carry a big stick.

A big broom handle, anyway.

The deer struggled to get its footing on the hardwood floor and tile, but it did eventually scurry through the open front door.

The Department of Natural Resources reports that the deer did not appear to be seriously injured—which is more than can be said for the house.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
