Deer checks out crowded beach at Lake Michigan during Fourth of July weekend

(WISN) — A holiday weekend seemed to mean a break for even the wildlife, or at least for one deer, who enjoyed a beach crowded with people.

“It’s just … enjoying himself here,” said a person who narrated the scene on video.

People said it walked down to the water, where it stood in the waves near people sitting in beach chairs.
