No injuries were reported this morning after a white-tail deer attempted to board a school bus traveling on state Route 30 in Schoharie.
The school district sent out an e-mail alert this morning reporting that neither the bus driver nor a student on the bus were injured when the deer tried to force its way into the closed door of the bus just before 7 a.m.
The incident took place near the Schoharie campus of the Capital Region BOCES’ Career and Technical School. The deer left “a considerable” amount of hair on the school bus before running into the woods, the district reported.
State Police and emergency medical personnel were called to the scene as part of the district’s protocol.
