Deer jumps off building in Minneapolis

Even in the metro, responding to a call about a deer is nothing out of the ordinary for Thephong Le.

But for the Minnesota DNR conservation officer, this was a first.

Le, who patrols the west metro area of the Twin Cities for the DNR, responded to a call of a deer jumping off a building in Minneapolis – an abandoned, parking-ramp-like building that sits atop a bluff near the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory off Southeast Third Avenue in Minneapolis, near the banks of the Mississippi River, Le said.

He figures that the deer navigated the ramp to the top and must have gotten spooked, prompting it to jump. With the height of the bluff and the building, Le estimated that the doe ultimately fell about 80 feet to its death.
