DULUTH -- It was about 10:30 p.m. Monday when the scratching started outside their home.

Tara Richter and her husband, Richard Maclin, looked out the window to see what all the commotion was about. But they didn't see anything.


When the noises got louder about 11 p.m. and something started banging on the glass storm door, they finally opened the front door. That's when they saw a small deer stuck halfway through an iron railing along their front steps.
