Deer traps itself in classroom at Kings Junior High School

KINGS MILLS, Ohio - A deer became stuck in a Kings Mills school classroom early Monday morning and had to be removed.

A 10-point buck jumped through a window at Kings Junior High School located at 5620 Columbia Road in King Mills at some point early Monday morning. When school officials arrived at about 7 a.m. Monday morning, they found the deer trapped in one of the classrooms.

A local game warden and the fire department tranquilized the deer and transported it out of the building at about 8:45 a.m. The deer did not cause any injuries, according to officials. The buck, however, did sustain some injuries after getting stuck in the classroom, and eventually had to be put down.

When students arrived at the school, administrators moved them to the cafeteria to wait for the deer to be removed. Officials locked down the wing of the school where the deer was located, but it never left the classroom. Classes resumed at about 9 a.m.

School officials say they have never had anything like this happen before at the building.

Authorities have not released any additional details at this time including details about any damage the deer caused to the building.
