Deer break through window of bar, damages politician’s office east of Toronto

A deer broke through the window of an Oshawa bar on Sunday.


A trio of deer roamed through a city east of Toronto this morning, checking out a local bar and damaging a politician’s office.

Oshawa, Ont., bar the Atria posted on its Facebook page this morning that a deer had broken through its front window, although by late afternoon the music venue was “officially open.”

Jennifer French, a local NDP member of the legislature, also posted on Facebook that her community office was damaged by a deer, and will reopen when it’s cleaned up.

Durham regional police say two deer managed to escape while the deer that broke into the bar was captured around 4 p.m. and treated for a minor cut.

The province’s ministry of natural resources and forestry says that deer was tranquilized and will be released away from the city.
