From Douglaston Patch:
The 111th Precinct received a surprise visitor on Monday after a Bayside resident made an anonymous drop-off at the precinct’s Northern Boulevard-based station.
The precinct kept the deer in a kennel until a rehabilitator from WINNOR (Wildlife in Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation) could pick it up and take it to the nonprofit’s nature center in Massapequa, L.I..
The doe, which was estimated to be three or four weeks old, only weighs eight pounds, but will likely grow to be 100 pounds, [Rehabilitator Cathy] Horvath said.
Patrick Kwan, New York State director for the Humane Society of the United States, said it is not surprising that the deer was wandering around the five boroughs.
