VIDEO: Deer Crashes Through Window at Atlanta Taco Mac

Atlanta deerHunters, add restaurants to the list of places to find deer.

Patrons at an Atlanta-area Taco Mac were visited by a deer that crashed through the restaurant's front window and lost an antler in the process of scampering about the restaurant, according to reports.

"The deer comes straight through the parking lot, smashes through the window right in front of the host stand and goes around the corner around the host stand," manager Adam Buckner told reporters. "At the time, one of our servers is over at our patio door area, and he opens the door and it goes right outside onto the patio, then it gets out from the patio area."

One customer was nicked in the leg by some glass sent flying by the scampering buck, but patrons were otherwise unharmed.


Don McGowan, senior wildlife biologist in the Social Circle office of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, said the rut may have had something to do with the buck's wild behavior. Why the deer crashed through the Taco Mac window, though, is anyone's guess.


"But it doesn't really explain why he'd crash through a window unless maybe, perhaps, he saw his reflection and thought it was a rival deer. But that's just speculation," McGowan told the newspaper.

The 6.8 Western features a .277-caliber bullet loaded into a case that's been optimized to fit longer, heavier bullets. Consider it a .270 on steroids, or more accurately, an improved version of the .270 Winchester Short Magnum, which never gained enough traction to make it mainstream.
