It was rush hour on Friday in San Francisco, and traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge came to a grinding halt -- all thanks to two rather unexpected guests.
According to NBC News, two deer wandered onto the Golden Gate Bridge at around 5.30 p.m. and promptly stopped up the flow of traffic on three northbound lanes. The deer appear to have entered from the southern end of the bridge, the news outlet said, and were running toward Marin County.
The duo reportedly got off the bridge safely and commuters were soon able to continue their journeys.

"You just don't see this everyday," wrote one Instagrammer who snapped a photo of the two deer sauntering across the bridge. "#deergate2014"
