The Braintree, Massachusetts police department posted this amazing video to their Facebook page yesterday that shows a motorist bringing an injured deer into the local animal shelter... in the back of a Subaru!

While dropping off an injured raccoon at the animal wildlife center in Weymouth, our Animal Control Officer was flagged down by a motorist who had a deer in his vehicle. Yes, you read that correctly.

The deer had been struck, and the motorist brought it there for medical attention. The Environmental Police were contacted, however before they arrived the deer was checked out and ran off into the woods.

Animal Control appreciates the intentions of the motorist wanting to save the deer but cautions the hazards of transporting wild animals in vehicles.

It looks like the deer made it!
