This really made me laugh out loud. Imagine the Policman's face when he saw the statue!

They should have brought the K9 unit for the "baby deer" statue call. At least they would have been able to "locate" the deer unlike then Cayuga road incident where they actually spotted the suspect, had a good description, but somehow just couldn't locate the suspect. Even with the K9. Great police work, NOT.
