Wildlife officials have euthanized a deer that wandered from Staten Island into Jersey City.
An Environment Protection Department official says they had to kill the one-year-old deer because it was the only way to test for chronic wasting disease.
The deer was first spotted Tuesday by Saint Peter's University. A tag showed the deer was originally from Staten Island and it is unclear how the deer managed to cross state lines.
A New York City parks spokesperson says the deer likely swam to Jersey City or jumped over construction on the Bayonne Bridge.
