A deer that was spotted in Downtown Jersey City this morning is swimming across the Hudson River toward Governors Island in New York Harbor, Jersey City officials said moments ago.

The New York Police Harbor Patrol is monitoring the deer, which witnesses in Jersey City have said is a 10-point buck. The Harbor Patrol and Jersey City authorities combed the Jersey City waterfront, where the animal was seen.

Martinez said police and the city’s Animal Control Office began receiving calls this morning about the deer spotted roaming downtown.

An Animal Control officer at the scene this afternoon told Jersey Journal reporter Michaelangelo Conte that deer were spotted a couple weeks ago near the Tonnelle Circle on the other side of the city.
