    There is a funny stereotype that big brown bears roam the streets of Russian cities just like they do in the wild. Well, now it seems like another member from the animal kingdom has decided to join its ranks. A deer was seen running amok in the central district of Saint Petersburg.

    A video has emerged on Russian social network VKontakte showing a deer in St. Petersburg on Yuri Gagarin prospect trying to get away from the police.

    Cars were everywhere and three traffic police officers tried to stop the poor animal, probably to charge it with a speeding ticket.

    It is unclear where the animal came from and how it ended up in the district, but one thing was for sure, the citizens of the city were definitely not expecting to see a deer being chased by police on a slow Sunday morning.

    ​According to the website Fontanka.ru, the police eventually managed to catch the animal by throwing a rope over its horns and tying it down.
