A deer is on the loose around Sydney’s CBD and police are advising drivers to slow down after it was spotted on a major arterial bridge just before dawn.

Police say they were alerted to the stray deer around 5.25 am on Thursday after a driver saw it on the city-bound off ramp on the Anzac Bridge at Pyrmont.

“Officers did spot the deer but it ran off – we are not deer wranglers,” a spokeswoman said.

Police have called in the RSPCA and local council rangers and advised residents with dogs to keep them on a leash.

It comes just weeks after two deer were spotted roaming around Sydney’s inner west last month. One of those had to be euthanised by the RSPCA.


The deer was last seen on Harris St around 6am.
