The result of the deer being in the city resulted in traffic chaos and some red-faced police.

The deer ran through busy roads and through gold coast residents' backyards evading animal control officers, officers armed with tranquilizer guns.

The small herd of four beasts were too smart, or at least too quick. Male deer are being blamed for driving the three does and fawn into the suburbs.

Animal experts say it's rutting season and the does may have left a nearby state forest to escape the males. Some female viewers are probably rolling there eyes thinking, "I know how they feel."
