Police say a very drunk New York man struck a deer with his vehicle.
Feeling guilty, he then tried driving the injured animal to a nearby hospital — for humans.
Police say 29-year-old Andrew Caswell hit the deer early Monday in the suburban Rochester town of Greece.
They say Caswell and three companions argued over what to do with it before Caswell decided the deer needed to go to the hospital.
An officer who pulled the car over discovered the deer was in the vehicle’s trunk and had died.
Police say Caswell’s blood-alcohol level was .16, twice the legal limit.
Police Chief Todd Baxter said that while trying to save the deer was commendable, “driving while intoxicated will not be tolerated.”
