Deer Wants Fresh Chocolate Chip Cookies Now!
CINCINNATI, Ohio- A deer scampered into the Whole Foods store in Rookwood Commons and charged in, heading for the smell of baking chocolate chip cookies in the bakery section. "He was hanging out next to the oven waiting for the cookies to come out," said Scott Hartman, the store's manager, adding, "That's not a normal thing." The deer hung out in the bakery 25 minutes until the SPCA showed up. Once a tranquilizer took effect, police and the SPCA carried the animal out without a cookie. Hartman said this is the third time he's run a Whole Foods location that's hosted a deer. "Apparently deer like quality organic gourmet food."
