OAKLAND (AP) — California Highway Patrol officers say they stopped a young deer on a Bay Area toll bridge “for toll evasion.”
A photo published Tuesday by the CHP shows the doe on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge standing in the middle of an on-ramp with a typical deer-in-the-headlights look.
The officer joked in a Twitter post that the fawn usually pays the toll but “today she was a buck short.”
CHP Officer Matthew Hamer says two officers were on patrol on the bridge early Tuesday when the deer came out of the woods on Treasure Island and walked in front of their car.
He says after staring at them for a couple of minutes — long enough for the officers to snap a photograph — the deer went back into the woods.
