How and why do wild animals find their way into a home garden?
We can only guess, and there may be quite a number of different reasons but probably that household has no dog, the entrance to the yard is not closed with a gate and the animal felt secure for almost a week.
Somewhere in the vicinity a predator may have scared a feeding roe deer flock and scattered the animals. So a lonely animal might have been left to roam around and to find a place that it felt was safe. A similar situation might be caused by straying dogs; they too are quite often seen running around…
Animals lacking food also come near human dwellings.
