Deer Killed by Atlantic City Police

Atlantic City residents spotted a large deer running around their neighborhood early Friday morning.

An Atlantic City police supervisor shot a deer that managed to work its way into a dog pen early Saturday morning.

Police say that the deer was killed at 30 N. Morris Avenue at around 7:30, and added that the animal had become a danger to itself and the community.

According to police, the very large white-tailed buck was first spotted in the Chelsea Heights neighborhood around 3:30 in the morning.

One witness said he saw the deer jump over a car and nearly get hit by a bus.

At another point during the morning, the deer was spotted on West End Avenue before it ran off into a near-by marsh, where it disappeared.
