A deer broke through a bank's window and smashed three others Monday, apparently mistaking its reflection for a rival, authorities said.

Police and game wardens needed about an hour to get the bleeding buck out of the Mellon Bank branch.A road crew used shovels to break the rest of the glass, lined up and drove the buck through the window and into a nearby forest.

The damage was mostly blood stains and glass in the lobby, bank spokeswoman Norma Buhrman said.
