Deer runs through Laguna Beach stores, wades into water and dies

A deer ran through two stores Wednesday afternoon in Laguna Beach, was hit by a car and then died after it ran into the ocean.

The animal, which had just one antler, barreled through a clothing store and pharmacy around 4 p.m., according to a report in the Orange County Register.

The deer smashed into the car and headed toward the beach, where it started swimming in the surf as animal control officers followed, the report said. The deer ran inside a cave on shore, where one of the officers performed CPR as waves rolled in.

The officers carried the deer onto the sand, where it died.
