A deer made it's way downtown today, eventually running down Rutledge Avenue and into Colonial Lake, where rescue workers spent several hours trying to rescue it.

Apparently the deer had been spotted all over the Peninsula today, including the Crosstown and the Market.

One thing we do now know: Our officials would fail the cowboy lasso test, horribly.

Head over to The Post and Courier for the story and this entertaining, if slow, video clip.
