A deer apparently hit by a car had to be put down October 26 after it wandered into the ED at a Rochester, New York, hospital, according to a report from WNYT-TV.

The deer walked through the automatic doors at the entrance to Strong Memorial Hospital's emergency room, and made it about 20 feet down a corridor before staff members corralled it, WNYT reported.

Two police officers happened to be at the hospital when the injured deer wandered in, the report said, and along with hospital public safety officers, strapped the deer to a gurney and wheeled it out to the parking lot where the deer was put down. No one at the hospital was hurt.
