(Scroll down for video) Several police officers will not so quickly engage in opening car trunks of suspicious vehicles in the near future.

A public safety official was searching a suspicious car parked behind a southwest Michigan motel early Tuesday when suddenly a deer came out of the trunk, ran into the road and bolted into the nearby woods.

Local television news stations reported that the driver told Kalamazoo Officer David Miller that he hit the deer in the road and he thought he had killed it so he took it home for dinner.

Police car dashboard camera video shows Miller opening the trunk, and trying to close it quickly because he saw the deer. The animal escaped from the trunk and ran off into the woods.

Lt. Stacey Geik said that the collision probably just surprised the deer.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
