Whitney Hart, an aesthetician at Salon SPAtoria in Victoria, says three deer came running across the parking lot and went straight through the storefront window at about 11:30 a.m.

"It's so Minnesotan of me to say oh look a deer. I said, 'Robyn, there's a deer.' Three of them. And they're coming into the parking. And I was like they're not slowing down," Hart said.

Only two of the deer entered through the window before exiting out the back door of the salon, leaving behind an "immense amount of damage," the salon says.

"As soon as they came into the room they left," said Hart "They proceeded to come here, jump over the shampoo bowls into this area where they were slipping and sliding and jumping up against the glass windows."

Brooke Paradise, a masseuse was with a client in the next room.  

"From my perspective you would've thought a car came through. My wall shook, my table was wobbly," said Paradise. 

The staff says the deer actually went to the bathroom after crashing through window and checking out the shampoo bowls. Not to do its business but they were following the light. 

Part of the incident was captured on video.

A cleaning crew worked overnight into Thursday and reopened for business later that day.
