MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee County Transit System posted video on Facebook on Thursday, February 16th of a close encounter between a county bus and a deer.

According to captions within the video, MCTS driver Alfreeda Gogins was driving on Good Hope Rd. on a recent evening — when something caught her eye. It was a deer trying to make its way across the road — at a point in the road where there is a posted deer crossing sign.

Gogins reacted and was able to brake early enough to avoid striking the deer. The video from the bus even shows the deer got away unharmed.

    You are kidding? Report on a deer running in front of a bus on Good Hope rd.? Maybe the folks at MCTS have a bit too much time on their hands. I now see why they have a need to tack on more fees to operate.
