A couple of Bay Area deer were briefly caught in a traffic snarl as they crossed San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge at rush hour Friday evening.
The two deer, whose names have not been released but might just as easily be named Prancer and Dancer for their exceptional galavanting abilities, were commuting to their destination somewhere in Marin at the end of the long work week Friday evening.
The deer briefly caused a traffic hold up across the iconic bridge but—like many of us on any given day at quitting time—appear unmoved by the humans gawking at them.
According to the news agency Storyful, which posted the video of the deer on their commute off the San Francisco peninsula, the California Highway Patrol was called to the scene but by the time they arrived the deer were off the bridge and off on their merry way.
No evidence has emerged to suggest that the deer did not make it home in time for dinner.
