Knock, Knock. Who’s There? A Deer in the Hotel?

Imagine being the guy at the front desk when this deer decides to check in for the night … or maybe not. A clattering of noisy feet and banging around in a college town hotel usually means specials like nickel beer or jello shooters at McSlobber’s Pub. But this buck wild experience at the...
