Here in the Hudson Valley, seeing a deer is an everyday occurrence this time of the year. When one was seen in Jackie Robinson Park in Harlem recently it was further proof that anything can happen in New York City.

A report from New York 1 said the deer, which was reportedly missing an antler, appeared to be in good health otherwise. There is speculation that the deer may have crossed a bridge or even swam to the city, but no way of knowing for sure.

According to the report, there have been other deer sightings in the city, but that this is the only one confirmed so far. The city plans on euthanizing the deer, but the state has offered to relocate it upstate.

"After repeated attempts to provide the City with alternative options to euthanasia, including relocation, the state is securing the safe transport of the deer to suitable habitat upstate in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Unit," New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Spokesman Sean Mahar said.
