The woman called 911. Officers found her trapped on her living room couch, with her walker knocked over, as one deer jumped about the room.

Sgt Kevin Gerber said an officer shielded the woman after that deer knocked her over.

Sgt Gerber says officers subdued and removed one deer.

He says two others that ended up in a bathroom were tranquilised and released.

He said the woman was not injured and “was amazingly calm” during her ordeal, but the deer badly damaged her apartment.
