Deer runs into airport terminal

A deer was put down after it was injured during a run through the Kansas City Airport.

Airport spokesman Joe McBride said the yearling doe went through automatic doors into Terminal A at 5:45 a.m. Monday. He said the deer ran about 100 yards from near the Midwest Airlines section to US Airways gates.

There she ran through a line of about 50 bewildered passengers waiting at a US Airways gate, jumped over a ticket counter, onto a baggage belt and into an office. A worker was able to lock the office door.

McBride said officers from Kansas City Animal Control and the Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services were called. But after they tranquilized the deer, they decided to euthanize her due to severe injuries suffered running through the terminal.

I wonder if they had to evacuate the terminal because of the breech of security. If a deer can get through security then what's to prevent a terrorist.
