This video from KIRO 7 in Michigan shows how quickly things can happen. Shared by the Oakland County, Michigan, Sheriff’s Office, the incident was initially reported to have happened in Michigan. A quick view of the video, though, shows that the deer involved are definitely not whitetails. Though it’s difficult to get a sure ID on them, we’re thinking it’s most likely a herd of red deer — especially if the video was actually filmed in Poland, as reported by the Miami Herald.
Wherever it happened, it was a close call. In the video, you see the animals dashing out in front of the car. One deer jumps over the vehicle, and then a buck (or young stag, as they say) lands on the back windshield before running away.
