Stuck Like a Deer on Governors’ Island

Deer tourist

Today the Post reports with the spectacular headline “Going stag to NY? Bad i-deer” that a deer from New Jersey did like so many of that state’s residents, and came to the city to do some sightseeing yesterday. Its visit was cut short, though, after it paddled two miles across New York Harbor and ended up stranded on Governors Island. NYPD tranquilized the confused tourist and put him on the free ferry to Staten Island. Mr. Deer plans to bring the whole family along for his next visit to the city: “We’re taking the kids to the Central Park Zoo; I hear they have deer there.” (Curbed)
