MORRIS COUNTY - A deer that was discovered in Morris County with an arrow through its jaw has finally had it removed.

Susan Darrah first saw the deer on her property last week and called the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife. After waiting for another sighting of the wounded deer, they finally caught up with the animal and tranquilized him Saturday night.

Darrah says representatives from Fish and Wildlife unscrewed the arrow tip and pulled it out of the deer’s snout. They then cleaned and medicated the wound.

After a while, the deer came back to its senses and walked off into the wood by itself, appearing to be just fine.

Darrah named the deer “Steve Martin” after the comedic “arrow through the head” bit. A picture of the impaled deer went viral last week.
