Cohasset: Deer dies after crashing through window

A 9-1-1 call Tuesday reported a deer in the house.
Paul Murphy Cohasset’s Animal Control Officer, said the deer came in by crashing through a window.
“In the confines where it was, it had no place to go but forward,” Murphy said. “There would be no real reason to jump through a window like it did unless it was being pursued by a coyote or a fox.”
Murphy says a local veterinarian, Dr. Fawn Stevenson was able to help them get the deer out of the Nichols Road home.
“Anytime we have wildlife problems she’s right there for us,” Murphy said. “She came down with her crew, and they were able to get the deer under control, sedate it, and transport it to her clinic.”
Murphy says the doe was very stressed , as deer tend to get in these situations, and despite the best efforts of the vet, the deer did not make it through the surgery. The deer was treated for blood loss, shock, and several lacerations.
