APOLLO, Pa. (AP) – An unwanted intruder – a deer – is forcing a western Pennsylvania school district to take a second look at security at its high school.
Apollo-Ridge Superintendent Matt Curci tells the Valley News Dispatch that the deer ran “full speed” into the school’s magnetically closed lobby door, which caused it to open June 5.READ MORE: Con Alma, Restaurant And Jazz Club, To Open Downtown Location
Curci says the deer had to hit the door “in the right spot with a lot of force” to make that happen – but says the incident on June 5 has given officials pause that the door might otherwise be forced open.READ MORE: Ex-West Virginia Councilman Charged For Breaching U.S. Capitol In Jan. 6 Riots
Nobody was hurt when the deer got into the school, although classes were still in session. A Kiski Township officer patrolling the school was able to direct the startled animal out another door.MORE NEWS: Federal Judge Extends Stay On Ohio Heartbeat Abortion Ban
