As can be seen in the video, the stag seemed lost and unsure as it makes its way past the busy Burmarrad road in the heavy traffic.
It would seem that the stag escaped from Bird Park located a short distance away from the Salina area.
Footage was uploaded on social media taken by people who witnessed this unusual scene and who confirmed that Police and officials from the Department of Animal Protection went on site. However, it appears they failed to catch the stag who escaped in a nearby field.
From other comments uploaded it appears that the stag was eventually caught and taken back to safety.
