Several residents have called the Animal Protection League of New Jersey after they spotted a deer with an arrow through her face wandering in Manalapan Township.
Pete Cintula of Manalapan, Monmouth Heights took a photo of the deer he saw walking near Robertsville Road in Manalapan Township.

“APLNJ is urging the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife to tranquilize the deer and get her medical attention to remove the arrow,” said, Janine Motta, APLNJ’s programs director.
The deer has been spotted several times over the last several weeks. While the deer appears otherwise healthy, callers have strongly expressed that they want her to be humanely captured, treated and released back to where she lives.
To help them get this deer the medical attention she needs, please call the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife at 609-292-2965 and urge them to do the right thing.
