KINGSTON Customers at a popular Hudson Valley coffee shop had a rare jolt with their java.
A young deer burst through the front door of Hudson Coffee Traders in Kingston on Tuesday morning, shattering the glass and halting everyone's daily grind while authorities attempted to trap the animal.
Shop owner Donna Brooks tells the Middletown Times-Herald Record that patrons looking for their daily pick-me-up quickly picked up their belongings and headed outside.
Inside, the doe hung out near the back of the shop and stayed fairly sedate for about a half hour until animal control and Kingston police arrived. Animal control officials were able to safely corral the animal and it was released back into the wild.
No one was hurt.
