Deer run red light

Herd of deer caught on camera running light in downtown Vernon

A herd of deer are captured running a red light in downtown Vernon Sunday morning, at the intersection of 32nd Avenue and 33rd Street.

“I thought it was something different to have visitors like this in our town,” said Darrel Wilhnon, who caught the animals on video.

He first spotted the deer at the intersection across from Kiss FM around 8 a.m. Since posting the video to Facebook, it’s gone viral with 446 shares and 27,000 views.

“I didn’t think it would be this popular,” said Wihnon.

This isn’t the Vernon man’s first brush with fame. He recently played the Mafia bodyguard at dinner theatre show Tony N Tina’s Wedding at Lone Pine Ranch.
