HARTFORD -- A deer has been euthanized after being impaled on a fence in Hartford early Thursday morning.

A FOX61 viewer sent in an email reporting around 5:30 a.m. that the deer was stuck on Capitol Avenue. FOX61 then notified DEEP who arrived a couple hours later. FOX61's Ashley Afonso remained the only station at the scene during the duration of the incident.

The road was eventually closed while police and DEEP officials handled the deer. It took around two hours for DEEP to arrive on scene.

The deer was euthanized around 7:20 a.m., and Capitol Avenue has since been reopened.
