California highway officers say they stopped a young deer on a California bridge ‘for toll evasion’.

A photo published Tuesday by the California Highway Patrol shows the doe on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge standing in the middle of an on-ramp with a deer-in-the-headlights look.

The officer joked in a Twitter post that the fawn usually pays the toll but ‘today she was a buck short’.

Highway patrol Officer Matthew Hamer says two officers were on patrol on the bridge early Tuesday when the deer came out of the woods on Treasure Island and walked in front of their car.

He says after staring at them for a couple of minutes and long enough for the officers to snap a photograph that the deer went back into the woods.

The California Highway Patrol is now trying to figure out how a four legged commuter ended up on the bridge in the first place

It’s possible the little deer wanted to be part of a commercial. A crew was filming on the bridge overnight.
