(NEW CASTLE) - Central Indiana police say a deputy who responded to a complaint about a peeping-tom deer that was peering into homes' windows found the animal friendly enough to pet.

The Star Press reports that a 911 caller in New Castle reported Wednesday night that a deer that was "looking through windows." The caller said the deer was wandering about in the front yards of a neighborhood north of the New Castle Correctional Facility.

When a Henry County sheriff's deputy arrived he found the deer to be "extremely friendly, to the point that subjects were able to approach the deer and pet it." But other residents reported that the animal would sometimes bite or appear aggressive.

Conservation officers planned to move the deer to another location.
