    Bubba the deer causes havoc on Halloween

    A deer named "Bubba" prompted several calls to deputies Saturday after he pushed over a 2-year-old and scared Elba, Minn., trick-or-treaters, only to be found sitting on a man's couch and watching TV, according to the Winona County Sheriff's Department.
    No one was injured during the deer's Halloween ruckus. The 6-month-old buck, adorned with an orange scarf and sign that reads "Hi, my name is Bubba. Please don't shoot me," had been fed by Gary Arthur Thelen, 49, said Chief Deputy Ron Ganrude.
    Deputies first got wind of Bubba shortly after noon Saturday, when an Elba mother reported the buck had knocked over her 2-year-old child, Ganrude said. The deer came from behind, leaving a muddy hoof-print on the child's back.
    The woman knew the deer from its sign and bandanna, and said a man in town had been feeding it. Deputies couldn't find the deer, but soon heard of its further exploits.
    Ganrude said more calls came in at about 6 p.m., when deputies were dispatched back to Elba for a deer harassing trick-or-treaters. A man said he and his small son were charged by the deer with the bandanna.
    Deputies and a Minnesota conservation officer then went to Thelen's house. When they went inside, they found Thelen - and Bubba - sitting on the couch, watching TV, Ganrude said. Thelen told deputies he had been feeding the wild deer since it was a fawn and had put the sign on him.

    I hope the 2 year old is okay. Those poor kids were probably terrified.

    Bubba certainly wreaked a lot of havoc on his Halloween outing.

    I don't know, I'm kind of rooting for the deer. Sounds like he's someone's reincarnated cranky uncle.

    Sounds almost like Bubba was doing it on purpose!

    Hey, I think I heard a BOLO around last Christmas regarding a hit and run involving a deer and a grandma. Wonder if they could be related?
