Deer Running Loose in Pembroke Pines

A deer has been spotted running in and out of a Pembroke Pines neighborhood.

The deer was seen in the roadway near Dykes Road and Pines Boulevard Tuesday afternoon, Pembroke Pines Police said.

Police posted to their Facebook page advising motorists to take caution in the area, and are asking residents not to call 911 unless the deer is in the roadway or causing a safety concern.

"If you see the deer roaming around the west side of the city the best thing that you can do is leave it alone," Capt. Al Xiques said. "Leave the deer alone and hopefully it will reach is natural habitat again."

Authorities with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission are also assisting.
