He Probably Took the "El"

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A deer found its way into a terminal at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on Tuesday but was captured safely near a baggage claim area, officials said.

The young buck apparently entered through an automatic freight door leading to the unsecured lower level of Terminal Two. It may have been injured elsewhere on the grounds and was seeking shelter, according to Annette Martinez, spokeswoman for the Chicago Department of Aviation.

She said animal control officers were able to corner the animal and sedate him in an area where there were no passengers before taking him away to examine him.
O'Hare, the country's busiest airport in terms of air traffic, is located near large open grounds and forested areas.
