Deers and moving vehicles have always had a difficult relationship. What makes this video different (and watchable) is that it has a happy ending, preceded by a whole lot of “I need to watch this over and over again” chaos.
It happened Tuesday evening, when a bus driver was calmly cruising along on his route in Johnston, Pennsylvania, according to the New York Daily Times.
Out of nowhere, a young deer hurtles through his windshield and lands in a startled heap in front of him.
Obviously in shock, the unfortunate creature proceeds to lunge at, into and over everything in sight in a mad scramble to escape the strange receptacle. The bus driver gets brownie points for remaining calm, pulling over, opening the door and not panicking while the deer ricochets through his bus.
Meanwhile, at the rear of the bus, a lone passenger watches in astonishment.
In the end, the deer regains its senses and exits calmly through the open door.
Remarkably, the deer and everyone else involved appear to be completely unharmed.
The video, captured by the bus’s security cameras, was immediately picked up by news sites everywhere for its combination of weird news with a feel-good ending.
