Doe, a deer
While it may not be rare to spot deer in wooded areas across Massachusetts, this deer (pictured) nestled itself comfortably in the HOV lane on the Southeast Expressway.
State highway workers were preparing the zipper lane for the morning commute when they discovered the stranded fawn. The fawn was later turned over to environmental officials and released back into the wild.
Deer are all-too familiar in Weston, where the town has debated catching the animals and injecting them with contraception to limit the burgeoning population.
Officials eventually legalized bowhunting during the state’s deer-hunting season between October 15 and December 31.
