WADENA, Minn. -- Shoppers got quite the surprise at the Wadena Walmart when they noticed a deer perusing the aisles.
The picture has been circulating all over social media, and the Wadena Police Department confirms a deer did wander through the superstore.
Authorities say it happened around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
"It came in through the garden doors, and it must have been eating the flowers or something," said Stephanie Koljonen, a shopper who photographed the ordeal.
Tom Grasswick of Deer Creek says he was just trying to save a few bucks when a little buck jumped right into the unsuspecting shopper.
"It felt like I got slugged or something," said Grasswick.
He says it was just instinct to subdue the deer.
"I figured I was bigger than the deer so I'd win that wrestling match," said Grasswick.
After tackling the young buck, Grasswick and a few others covered its eyes before letting it free outside.
No one was injured.
