The confused white-tailed deer entered the store at around 7.30pm local time in the big-box store in Wadena, 150 miles northwest of Minneapolis, police said, causing commotion as it galloped down the aisles.

Grasswick held the deer down, pinning it with his legs, while covering its eyes to keep it calm, before teaming up with other customers to take it outside and release it.

Tom Grasswick, the man in the picture snapped by Koljonen, said he reacted on instinct when the deer ran into him. Shoppers say the little deer's wild deal hunt was likely a search for a snack.
