Summer is winding down, and that makes for an excellent excuse to hit the beach and chase the summer sun. Apparently, a 6-point buck in New Jersey is already way ahead of us on that though. . .
Residents near Ortley Beach had a rare beach goer hanging out in the surf this week – a male whitetail deer.
According to Patch, a spokesman for the Toms River Police Department said, “we have spent the better part of today trying to coax a deer to leave the land of sun and fun and make his way back to the woods.”
A photo of the deer was posted to the Toms River PD Facebook page:
This deer got a lot of attention during it’s day at the beach. Here’s a video a resident took of the buck standing in the surf and staring out at the waves:
