GRAND FORKS, N.D. - A deer smashed through a window and romped through the Grand Cities Mall on Sunday morning, mall manager Mary Noel said.

The mall's head custodian reported the doe's violent entry about 7 a.m. before pursuing it down three hallways.

"The window the deer crashed through was about 3 feet by 8 feet with concrete on either side," Noel said. "She cut herself because there was a trail of blood all over."

The custodian told Noel the "pregnant doe" butted her head against the window of the Stonegate Pet Shop but didn't get in. She then trampled a kiddie rocket ship ride and butted the windows of Hope Covenant Evangelical Church before bolting through the fire escape doors on the north side and heading toward 17th Avenue South, where she was almost struck by a police car.

Noel said damage to the mall was minor.

The Grand Forks Herald and The Forum are both owned by Forum Communications Co.
