KALAMAZOO, Mich. — What do get when you cross a deer with a police dash cam? You get a mad dash caught on tape.

It was a wild find. A Kalamazoo public safety officer checking parked cars at a Red Roof Inn off Cork Street.

Something seemed off as the officer approached a man just sitting in his car around 2 am, Tuesday morning.

“The driver or the occupant of the vehicle did state that he had a deceased deer in his trunk,” Lieutenant Stacy Geik said.

“I`ve been an officer for 22 years, and I have many things in a trunk and I have not seen a live white-tailed deer spring out the back of a trunk,” Geik said.

The deer certainly fooled the driver.

“I suspect the deer hit his car, ran into [and] probably knocked itself out. He picked it up. Put in the back of his vehicle to take home, and it wasn`t dead,” the lieutenant explained.

After the deer went dashing through the snow, the officer let the man go.

Everyone went home with a story to tell.

    I hit a deer in East Texas. I called 911 and the local sheriff came out to investigate the accident. After he collected all of the information from me, he picked up the deer and put it into the back of the Police pickup truck. His last words were "I hope that you did not bruise the meat". He said that one of the inmates will dress the deer and they will serve it to the staff and inmates in the local jail.
