Deer and Massachusetts state trooper at Nantasket Beach, Hull

Neil the roving UHub photographer reports a deer emerged from the ocean at Nantasket Beach this afternoon - possibly after running into the water near the comfort station at the north end of the beach.

State Police kept a close watch - and prevented any selfie situation by keeping people away. At first, troopers were looking for somebody to come tranquilize the doe so they could bring her somewhere safer, but then: Read more.

At the beach

Nantasket Beach wasn't exactly crowded around 2 p.m., but there were quite a few people there, from wetsuit-clad surfers to more casual body surfers and bathers to one guy with a metal detector.
