After a brief stint in politics Sunday morning, a deer in Oshawa clearly needed a drink.

So it went to a downtown bar, jumped through the window and spent several hours onstage.

"[The bartender] goes, 'You've got to call your mom. She's barricaded in the kitchen, because there's a deer that broke through the window,'" said Dino Iezzi, owner of the Atria Bar and Grill.

It all started Sunday morning, when a few deer headed downtown from the Oshawa Creek Ravine, said Durham Regional Police Staff Sgt. David McDougall.

The four-legged, furry constituents seemingly wanted a word with local MPP Jennifer French. So two or three deer broke into her office by smashing through the window, he said.

The deer did a tour of French's office, knocking over a plant and boardroom chairs — and enjoying being near the seat of power.

"I have a comfortable chair in the corner of my office that I think it looks like [the deer] was trying to spend some time in," said French.

Runs into bar, jumps on stage

When police officers arrived, the deer fled the scene. But while the others went home, one deer wasn't quite done with its Sunday outing.

Like some politicians, the deer finished a day's work by hitting the bar. Literally.

The deer ran a few more blocks downtown and jumped through the window of the Atria Bar and Grill — to the shock of the two women working inside.

"I guess the deer was running through the bar, trampling everything," said Iezzi, who got the unexpected call from his bartender that morning.

"San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)" is a song, written by John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, and sung by Scott McKenzie. It was written and released in June 1967 to promote the Monterey Pop Festival. McKenzie' s song became an instant hit .

The deer is then seen running off into the bushes without sustaining any apparent injuries. The police department decided to share the video for training Even though Officer Pittaluga wasn’t able to avoid hitting the deer , he was able to remain in control of his vehicle and keep the accident from being any

The deer got onto the Atria stage, and was trying to get through the kitchen doorway — where Iezzi's mother was trapped inside.

"For some reason my mum was going to try to scare the deer off, but I guess she got a little freaked out so she ran into the kitchen," said Iezzi, who's been reviewing security footage.

"The deer just kind of stood there right on stage for four...five hours," he said. His mother eventually escaped through a basement door.

"I'm not sure if it was waiting for karaoke to start, or what," said McDougall, who noted that one man was also having a drink at the bar during the ordeal.

Deer had minor injuries

Several police officers came to the scene, but the deer stayed onstage until a local vet and the Ministry of Natural Resources arrived.

They tranquillized the animal, stitched up its wounds and brought it to a local wildlife centre for eventual release, McDougall said.

The officer stopped the vehicle and arrested the driver for impaired driving under the influence of a drug.

Fuel began leaking from the plane directly after it hit the deer , resulting in an emergency landing, the Charlotte Observer first reported. American Airlines confirmed the report to Business Insider, stating that the flight immediately landed so the 44 passengers and 4 crew members could evacuate safely.

" After striking the deer , the group pulled over and the three men loaded the live deer into the vehicle," said the AGFC. "Rewis told officers that he planned to tag the deer and clean it. The group also did not contact the Arkansas County Sherriff’ s Office to report the accident."

He said the deer had minor injuries, but is doing fine.

Meanwhile, the Atria Bar and Grill was back open in time for its weekly Sunday jam.

"I thought it was just us animals partying there all these years, but I guess the deer like it, too," laughed Iezzi.

'Quite a day' in Oshawa

Throughout the day, several people stopped outside to watch the scene unfold.

Erum Khan was sitting in her car Sunday morning, when she heard the bar window shatter.

She looked up, and saw a deer's hind legs sticking out the bar window, before the whole deer got inside.

"It just went right through," she remembered.

Khan saw the deer running around the bar trying to get out, with its face and neck bleeding, she said.

Outside, police taped off the area, while several people stopped by to take pictures, said Khan. Her car was trapped inside the police tape, so she was there for the entirety of the deer saga.

"It's a downtown city, so you wouldn't expect to see a deer flying through a window of a bar like that," she said, adding that it was sad to see the animal injured and stuck.

Oshawa (2016 population 159,458; CMA 379,848) is a city in Ontario, Canada, on the Lake Ontario shoreline. It lies in Southern Ontario, approximately 60 kilometres east of Downtown Toronto.

Whitby— Oshawa was a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 2004. Following the 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution, the bulk of the district will become part of the new Whitby district

While the MPP's office will be closed for a few days so the damage can be repaired, French said she's glad the deer is getting the care it needs.

"There are always a number of issues that bring people to our office. It must have been a very pressing need to bring it in on a Sunday," she laughed.

"It's been quite a day in Oshawa. I'm at a hockey game right now and everybody is talking about the downtown Oshawa deer."

An unusual event

While they've had brushes with wildlife, McDougall said they've never had deer heading downtown before — and certainly not into buildings and bars.

He has "no idea" why it happened.

Meanwhile, Iezzi said he's just glad the deer is alive and well.

"I'm still freaked out," said Iezzi. "I'm glad that they didn't put him down and it's a happy ending...I have a broken window, but it's no big deal."

And at the very least, the day inspired some good jokes. Buck a beer, anyone?

Pro-oil convoy hits the road to drive message home to Ottawa.
BROOKS, ALTA.—Cruising down the Trans-Canada Highway on Thursday afternoon, Wade Woywitka of Vermilion, Alta., a three-hour drive northeast of Edmonton, is a man on a mission. Trailing behind him, two fraying banners tied to hockey sticks mounted on the back of his truck flap furiously in his wake — one, a Canadian flag, and the other a yellow happy face. A few hours earlier, his was one of about 160 vehicles that filed out of Red Deer, Alta., for Regina, Sask., on the first leg of the United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a 3,500-kilometre ride to deliver a message to the federal government in Ottawa.
