The buck remained in the salon for four hours before escaping
Jennifer Brady just opened JB’s Barber Shop last month in the Caln Village Shopping Center in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. She had worked for so long to open her own place, so you can imagine her surprise when, around 5 a.m. last Wednesday, she walked up to discover her shop in shambles and a buck locked inside.
Surveillance camera footage shows the deer crashing through one of the shop’s windows. When Brady arrived four hours later, it was still there.
“It was like a 6-point buck. Staring at me, I’m staring at it. I was like, I can’t believe this right now. And then it started going crazy and jumping up on the station, going back and forth into the mirrors,” she told 6 ABC.
Then, the deer jumped out the broken window and was gone.
Brady had to call her customers and explain why she had to reschedule their appointments, with workers in hazmat suits cleaning the shop.
“They couldn’t believe what they were hearing,” Brady said.
“At least it wasn’t someone trying to rob me. There was no ill will involved. It was just nature at its finest,” she said.
