Roaming deer in Wu Dining Hall greets Princetonians from break

‘Bambi escaped,’ says Princeton spokesperson Daniel Day

Another deer has roamed into the heartlands of Princeton University Saturday morning as Grace Grady '20 captured a video of a deer treading up the staircase of Wu Dining Hall. The deer then wondered into the residential area of Butler College dormitories. The deer is still in the building, according to university sources.

In March of 2017, a deer broke through a window to Forbes College and wondered the halls of the annex dormitory before leaving the building. Glass repairs following the incident lasted two weeks.

"Bambi escaped," says Assistant Vice President for Communications Daniel Day.

"The deer ran off and presumably will live to see another day," he said.
