    Injured Deer Walks Into Emergency Room of New York Hospital
    File--AP
    In this file photo from May 21, 2012, a deer crosses a road in Acadia National Park near Northeast Harbor, Maine. Hospital officials in Rochester, New York, said a deer (not the one shown here) walked into an emergency room.

    A deer apparently hit by a car brought itself to a New York hospital and walked into the emergency room Monday.

    Hospital officials said the deer walked through the automatic doors at the entrance to Strong Memorial Hospital's emergency room late Monday afternoon in Rochester.

    Officials said the deer made it about 20 feet down a corridor before staff members corralled it.

    The Monroe County sheriff's office said two deputies 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.

    A deputy euthanized the deer because of the severity of the animal's injuries, according to NBC affiliate WHEC.
