Watch: Deer suspected of ‘ding-dong ditch’ seen suspiciously darting off in video

Deer ding-dong ditch. Say that five times fast. 

A Ring camera captured what a Georgia sheriff’s office jokingly called a "ding-dong ditch" suspect. The suspect in question: a deer. 

On Nov. 5, the hooved suspect was seen in close proximity to a Ring doorbell camera on a Cherokee Sheriff Office deputy’s porch before it darted away – suspicious much?

"Be on the lookout for this 4-legged ‘ding-dong ditch’ suspect captured on video at one of our deputy's homes in Canton the other day," the sheriff’s office posted on its Facebook page.

Local news outlets said deer are very common in northern Georgia this time of year as it is "mating season from October until late December."
