The driver was warned to be cautious shortly after two animals were seen rushing through the western part of the city after the deer was found loose in central Sydney.

Several drivers called 2GB Benfordham and said they found a deer on Harris Street in Pyrmont early Thursday morning.

Since then, NSW police have issued warnings to drivers.

“After a deer was seen in the Pyrmont area around 5:30 am, drivers heading to the city were warned to take special care,” New South Wales police tweeted.

“Police are seeking expert assistance from RSPCA.

“Anyone who sees a deer is urged to call the police while staying away from the deer.”

Earlier this month, police officers were puzzled by a phone call that two of the four-legged creatures were seen walking in the western part of the city.

At the time, Rykart’s deputy inspector, David Westgarth, said it was unclear where the deer came from or whether they began to roam the Rykart residential area.

“No one has reported the missing deer. It’s a little difficult for them to get this far from the national park, so I’m not sure what happened,” said Inspector Westgarth.

One of the animals was finally found and captured after being caught behind the air conditioner unit. I had to be euthanized because of a serious injury.

No other deer was caught. Despite some sightings, the police were always too late.

“I was reading the newspaper in the living room when I heard a crash from my neighbor,” local resident Nick Zavithic said of his previous encounter with a deer.

Police said the deer was stuck in a small space behind the backyard fence and was watching for animal rescue volunteers until they arrived.

“The people there were pretty surprised,” said Inspector Westgarth.

It was an interesting year for Sydney in terms of animals.

In February, three baboons roamed around the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital after escaping the facility. They were finally captured after an hour long search.
