Deer Runs Through Depot

On Tuesday afternoon Lubbock Animal Control said an injured mule deer stumbled through parts of downtown Lubbock and was euthanized.

George Torres, Lubbock Services official, said the animal was injured with a broken jaw. He said authorities aren’t sure how the deer sustained the injuries before animal control personnel arrived and captured the 150-pound buck.

Animal control officials said the year-old deer was euthanized after it was shot with a tranquilizer dart while it was running through the Depot Entertainment District.
