Being in northern Kent County, we see a lot of deer. Occasionally we even see a few in the City of Cedar Springs, near wooded areas. But we don’t usually see anything like Aaron Geller, of Grand Rapids, saw in southwest Grand Rapids last week.

On Thursday, April 2, Geller, who lives in downtown GR, was driving about 3-4 miles away near Burton and Godfrey, when he saw a whole herd of deer in the front yard of a home. As he approached, they ran into the road, around a parked car, and into the next door neighbor’s yard. He quickly got out his phone and captured the event on video. The video footage has now been shown on several news and media sites.

Thanks so much, Aaron, for giving us permission to reprint this screenshot of your video!
