A deer apparently hit by a car brought itself to a New York hospital and walked into the emergency room.
Hospital officials say the deer walked through the automatic doors at the entrance to Strong Memorial Hospital's emergency room late Monday afternoon in Rochester. Officials say the deer made it about 20 feet down a corridor before staff members corralled it.
The sheriff's office had two deputies that happened to be at the hospital when the deer wandered in. They and hospital public safety officers strapped the deer to a gurney and wheeled it out to the parking lot.
One of the deputies put down the deer.

WTF??? The only thing cops know how to do in this country is kill stuff. What f**king barbarians. Law enforcement should know that killing this deer isn't even their damn job. In fact there is a whole other department dedicated to these types of situations. It's called Animal Control and they work with the PD. Apparently these cops need to learn something besides how to shoot a gun.

Wow! Can't believe they killed the deer. They could've taken it to the Vet.

This is a shtty story. Sounds more like a bad joke.
"An injured deer walks in to a New York Emergency Room"
"Two police officers escort it out and put it down"
"It didn't have health insurance"
