Must-see: Deer wanders into North Carolina Walmart, surprises holiday shoppers

Shoppers and employees at a Walmart in Charlotte, North Carolina, had quite a surprise Monday afternoon after a deer wandered into the store – and it was all caught on video.

A customer at the University City store sent WSOC-TV a video of what looks like a doe in the aisles of the store.

People were frantically trying to subdue the animal, eventually pinning it down.

Edmond Ratcliffe told WSOC-TV that it’s not what he expected to see while doing his last-minute Christmas shopping.

“It was kind of a stay-out-of-the-way situation because I know if I'm in the way, it could be trouble,” he said.

Animal control was called to the store to remove the deer. It was unclear what happened to the animal after that.
