People arriving at the Central Montessori in Okemos Monday morning had a bit of a fright.

When teachers and administrators arrived at 7:30 a.m. they saw a broken window in the front of the school.

Upon further investigation, they discovered the window was broken by two deer.

The deer, a doe and a fawn, went inside the school and were eventually cornered in a bathroom

Animal Control and the Michigan DNR arrived and after assessing the situation, used a tranquiler to calm and remove the deer.

The deer became docile with the drug and were able to be released outside of the school.

No one, including the deer, were hurt.

Police are not sure when they got inside the building, but it took them about an hour to get them out.

News 10 received an email from a parent who saw the DNR on the scene. Jacklyn Paletta told us that students and some parents were waiting in the cafeteria for authorities to handle the situation.
