    The poor deer. (Published Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009)

    NBC New York's helicopter (yeah, we have a helicopter) spotted a deer stranded on the rocky shores of Governors Island yesterday.

    The deer reportedly roamed through downtown Jersey City then leaped into the Hudson and swam to Governors Island -- about 2000 yards away.

    New York City police officers were able to sedate the deer with a tranquilizer.

    The animal is now living in a wildlife park on Staten Island.
