SAN FRANCISCO - Authorities say a pair of deer on the Golden Gate bridge snarled traffic in and out of San Francisco during the evening commute.

The California Highway Patrol says the deer were in the busier northbound lanes leading out of the city toward Marin County on Friday evening at about 5:30 p.m.

The deer briefly halted the evening commute as drivers slowed to give them space.

By 6 p.m., the officers on the way to the scene were called off because the deer were no longer in the road.

CHP Officer William Ogilvie tells the Chronicle that it's not uncommon for calls about "animal hazards" to work themselves out before the officers arrive because animals don't like traffic any more than humans do.
