A University of Iowa student got quite the site when heading to class Thursday morning.

Chase Rourke, a junior, says his brother was driving them to class down the Iowa Avenue bridge when they saw a buck running down the sidewalk. The buck then hopped the ledge into the river. The buck then swam to the riverbank.

The Iowa DNR says breeding season for deer starts in October and runs until January, so be on the lookout for them while driving!
