A deer has caused a fright after running away from a restaurant in Ukraine.

­The animal escaped when a patron opened its cage. It took a stroll along a motorway – and then visited a local kindergarten.

The deer is accustomed to being fed by children, and apparently followed their voices. But the kids were spooked by the four-legged guest, mistaking him for a wild moose.

Shortly afterwards, the deer’s owner arrived and caught the runaway.
