BALTIMORE - A wayward whitetail deer was fished out of the Inner Harbor on
Friday by employees of the National Aquarium and city police, an aquarium
The male deer was spotted by an aquarium employee about 9 a.m. swimming near
the USS Constellation, resting at one point against a buoy, said aquarium
spokeswoman Molly Foyle.
"We think he was somehow run into the Inner Harbor as part of the deluge
yesterday," Foyle said.
Employees used a boat docked at the aquarium to help rescue the deer. Police
officers in a department boat also helped, the spokeswoman said.
The deer, suffering from shock and hypothermia, was taken in an aquarium
vehicle, normally used to transport stranded marine mammals, to the
Baltimore <http://www.examiner.com/Topic-Baltimore.html> Zoo, where he was
given veterinary care and placed in a heated stall.
