Oh Deer!

Living in the country I guess it was inevitable that eventually I'd hit a deer. Well, yesterday was the day. At 10:30 a.m., about a kilometre from my house, it jumped out ahead of me and right into the hood of my car. I slammed on the brakes but it was too late. I hit it and it ended up in the ditch on the opposite side of the road, rolled twice and took off. I heard this from my neighbours who were driving toward me at that exact time of impact and saw the incident. By the time I looked back he was already gone.
Thankfully, I'm okay and hopefully the deer is healing somewhere in the woods. My car needs some body work and other than pouring myself a stiff drink tonight, life is pretty much the same, thankfully.

Thank goodness you are okay! I've had some close calls over the years but need a stiff drink now just reading about your first hand account.

I hope the deer is ticketed for failure to yield right of way. Glad you are ok

I have yet to have this happen to me, but I worry it will. Glad you're okay, and hopefully the deer recovered!

I'm betting the deer had more than one stiff drink! "Honey, you won't believe what happened to me today--after all these years, I hit a human..."
