WASHINGTON - A deer appeared to “buck” its fare as it sprinted through a Metro station early Tuesday morning.
Video released by Metro shows the deer running into the Crystal City Station at about 8:30 a.m.
The video shows the frazzled deer jumping back and forth from the platform to the tracks, startling two passengers waiting for a train.
Metro reported that the deer was able to safely exit through a tunnel heading back toward Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
Metro tweeted, “Seems like *everyone* wants to get aboard the @Capitals train this morning!”
Seems like *everyone* wants to get aboard the @Capitals train this morning! (Crystal City Station, 8:30 a.m. today -- this little guy somehow wandered into the tunnel & ended up at the station. Safely exited through the tunnel back toward DCA.) #OHDEER #ALLCAPS #WMATA #StanleyCup pic.twitter.com/3ibeGuYwUe— Metro (@wmata) June 12, 2018
