BOSTON (WHDH) - A wayward deer led law enforcement officials on a wild chase through the streets of Boston’s North End on Friday morning.

Video showed the 2-year-old deer eluding Boston police and Massachusetts Environmental Police officers before they were able to corner the animal in a playground.

Crews then tranquilized the deer, loaded it into a vehicle, and transported it to a less populated area.

Witnesses at the scene said that they believe the deer came from the Blue Hills area.

A deer was spotted trotting past a Green Line stop in Allston on Friday morning as well.
