Customer with Fast Moves Takes Down Startled Deer in Store

A deer smacked into just the right human when it found itself in a Walmart store. Nice take down, Tom. I’m glad the deer made it out safely. 

A confused white-tailed deer that wandered into a Walmart store in Minnesota ran into a startled customer who tackled the animal to the ground.

Shoppers at the store in Wadena (wah-DEE’-nah), 150 miles (240 kilometers) northwest of Minneapolis, speculated that the young animal was searching for a snack Tuesday when it entered the store through the garden center doors.
Tom Grasswick, who happens to live in Deer Creek, told WDAY-TV (http://bit.ly/2q0NvFz ) that he felt like someone had slugged him when the deer slammed into him. Grasswick says his first instinct was to tackle the animal, bringing it down on a pallet of dog food.
Grasswick covered the deer’s eyes to calm it down, and he and others took the animal outside and set it free.

It looks like a Jujitsu pin. I’d guess he had martial arts or prior wrestling experience. Many people train for years so that when an incident happens, the right physical reaction is a built-in body reflex. Trained reactions are faster than thoughts so you find yourself saying, “Woah, did I do that?”

Yes, you did! Deerjitsu.
