Deer wanders into New Caney woman’s home
A Montgomery County woman had an unexpected guest at her kitchen table over the weekend.
Cindy Callaway temporarily found a new friend when a deer wandered onto her property. She had just secured her 4-wheelers at her home in the Peach Creek Forest subdivision in New Caney when she was nudged by the deer.
While both she and the deer were initially startled, Callaway eventually realized it was no threat.
“He tapped me on the back and scared me. He scared himself too, but then he started following me around like a puppy all through the yard — he even came in my house,” Callaway said. “He was outside. I went in the house. Next thing I know I look and he’s following me in the house.”
STILL IN RECOVERY: $6.3 million federal grant could fund fire station, police facility
During its stay at Callaway’s house the deer tried to re-enter the home several times, gained an affinity for cigarette butts and bird bath water and began eating Callaway’s plants.
Eventually a long term solution was found.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office captured the deer on Friday. It was taken to Lake Houston Wilderness Park just a few miles down the road in New Caney.
