Police say four Long Island men captured two young deer and posted pictures of the animals on Instagram.

Investigators say they chased them with their car and captured them alongside a fence.

The Department of Environmental Conservation says it received the images from an anonymous tipster.

Cops found the men and ticketed them for environmental violations.

They’re due in court later this month.
