BARTONVILLE - A deer crashed into Echo Valley Meats' plate glass window and shattered it Thursday morning.

According Dave Alwan, owner of Echo Valley Meats at 608 W. Garfield Ave., he received a call around 6:45 a.m. from a woman who was driving nearby and saw the deer in action.

While Alwan and police initially thought the deer had come into the store, Alwan said video surveillance showed the deer crashing into the window and taking off. The deer was not found.

Bartonville Police Chief Brian Fengel said the broken window was worth $500, and nobody got hurt. Fengel said he has seen deer encounters like this before.

"I know it's rut season for deer," he said. "We've had a lot of deer accidents and a lot of deer running around."

Fengel said the accident is a coincidence because Echo Valley Meats processes deer meat.

"We're so good, they're just dying to get in," Alwan said.
