However, the New York State DOT was disappointed the furry animal didn't use the crosswalk!

" Crossing lessons needed! This furry friend spotted by a NYSDOT crew traveling on Route 28N in the Adirondack Park was nice enough to pose for the photo but obviously missed the memo on using crosswalks," the New York State DOT stated on Facebook.

Officials used the photo to remind drivers to watch out for people and animals on the roads.
