Clearwater’s BC Liquor Store was the victim of a break and enter from an unusual culprit this week.

On April 13 at about 3:35 p.m. a deer roaming the parking lot got spooked and ran full speed through the locked glass door, according to Clearwater RCMP Sgt. Grant Simpson.

Skyler Michael MacKenzie Gauvin, along with his girlfriend and her mother, came upon the discovery when they stopped in at the store.

“We got there to get some spiced rum and realized they were closed, but at the same time, we saw a giant hole in the window. My first initial thought was someone broke in,” said Gauvin.

“So we pulled up closer, saw the deer and we were already phoning 911. The police pulled up a few minutes later. They told us to go and they’d take care of the rest.”

RCMP said the deer broke its neck and died roughly 10 minutes after the incident.
