Students at a New Jersey middle school got an unexpected guest Friday.

A deer jumped through an open window and into the building.

Reporter Carolina Leid has the story.

This one-year-old buck caused quite a commotion at North Arlington middle school this Friday afternoon.

It squeezed its way into the school using an open window then busted a wall and knocked over a water cooler trying to get back out.

"My teacher was just freaking out so I come down and all I see is that window open with a deer...with a I'm just like 'oh! Ok - what is happening here?"

Students were in the middle of being dismissed from school.

Teachers, parents and students alike watching this spectacle snapped photos and shared them with i-witness news.

A little hands-on education from Mother Nature.

"There was a lot of kids basically got scared. Right through that window over there you can see hair on it and the hoof prints on it. It went right through the window. Scared our staff that was inside and our dean of students locked the door. Closed the door when it ran into the office."

Fortunately, no one was hurt.

Animal control tranquilized and removed the deer from the school.
