[May 25, 2012]  According to Bob Danosky, assistant chief of the Lincoln Fire Department, a strange accident occurred in downtown Lincoln on Thursday morning that resulted in a deer being seriously injured and consequently destroyed by local authorities.

Danosky said the deer had come into the downtown area and at around 8:30 Thursday morning was in the vicinity of the Cape Landing Salon on the corner of Broadway and Kickapoo streets.

The deer, presumably spooked by its surroundings, first smashed into a truck, then apparently startled, ran headlong through the glass doors of the salon.

The Lincoln police and fire departments were called to the scene. The deer was found to have made its way to the back of the building, where it collapsed from its injuries.

Personnel at the Lincoln police station said the animal was in serious condition and they had no choice but to put it down, and did so with a bow and arrow.

A call later in the morning to Paula Landess, owner of Cape Landing, revealed there was no one in the salon at the time of the incident. Landess said she'd prefer there not be a great deal of publicity over the matter.

She said the salon was going to need to be thoroughly cleaned, but other than the front door being broken, there was no major damage in the business.
