WASHINGTON, D.C. – “Oh deer!” That’s what people riding the Metrorail in D.C. were saying Tuesday morning after a surprising encounter.

Somehow, a deer managed to wander into the Crystal City Metro station around 8:30 a.m., and was seen trotting down the platform and across the tunnel.

Metro released surveillance video of the little fellow.

They say the deer was able to safely exit through the tunnel back toward DCA.
