Police officers in Kalamazoo, Michigan were shocked when they opened a vehicle's trunk to find a live deer jump out. Apparently, the driver of the vehicle hit the deer and thinking it was dead and not wanting to let all of that good venison go to waste, put the animal in his trunk to take home.

The deer, however, was just knocked out and when police opened the trunk, hopped out and ran off back into its natural habitat. Fortunately, the deer didn't seem to cause any injury or damage, and thus fell short of becoming a real life Tommy Boy scene.

Check out the video for yourself above.

      Happened to me when I was nine years old. My father had hit a pheasant that flew into our windshield. Thinking the pheasant was dead, my father collected it from the road, with the intention of pheasant under glass. The bird came to in the car and started flying around, almost causing a serious accident until a window was opened and the bird flew off.

        That sounds like that episode of King of the Hill where that happened.

        A guy I worked with hit a deer on the way to work. He put it in a new van . When he got to work he asked another guy to gut it for him. When he went out to help him the deer was sitting in the drivers seat. It destroyed the van. I guess that he just knocked the deer out when he hit it. I didn't see it, but I have a very vivid picture in my mind of it, and the look on the guys face,,,,,,hahahahahah

      This happened about 3 miles south of my house at the Red Roof Inn on Cork Street, just north of I-94 Exit 80. I can't believe that this story has gone viral. The deer are everywhere and closing in on the cities so it's quite possible that he knocked out the deer when he hit him but still should have known that it was still alive. there are a lot of deer near where this happened, the old GM Buick-Olds-Cadillac stamping plant across the highway has a lot of them on that property.

      Not trying to be a know it all. But anyone with thoughts of trying to salvage a deer in this manner. Should know that before you load em. You have to gut em. Other wise you will spoil the meat.

      OK, all you bleeding hearts out there; the deer could have made several nice meals for PEOPLE. They are more important than some wildlife varmint. The same holds true for rabbits and squirels too. What vegetable is served with road-kill? Squash.
