Deer swallow acorns whole?

"Heres something you don't see every day. I set a trail cam up on my friends deer's gut pile on Sunday. Went back today and sure enough it was gone. What was more interesting than coyote and crow pics was the whole acorns left behind that the deer must have been feeding on the morning before he was shot."

A local put this on FB. I thought they broke them up first. I passed some urban deer, a week ago, crunching acorns so how often do deer swallow acorns whole?
I’ve always heard them crunching away. Are they sure those acorns didn’t fall from a tree?
