A trio of deer roamed through Oshawa this morning, checking out a local bar and damaging a politician’s office.
Oshawa 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.
That deer suffered some injuries and remained in the bar. With assistance of a local veterinarian and the Ministry (MNR) the deer was tranquilized, stitched up and taken to an animal facility. The third deer made his way to a greenspace.

The province’s ministry of natural resources and forestry says that deer was tranquilized and will be released away from the city.
Erum Khan, who works near the Atria, says she was sitting in her car when the deer ran past her and into the bar’s window around 11 a.m.
She says people on the street were screaming and running away.
