To the idiot that hit a deer this morning at the top of the dip on Charters road—it’s 30 kph through there by the way—you need to grab a brain!
The poor thing was left there to suffer with broken legs, and it couldn’t move. You were long gone, the deer had been suffering for a while. It was still alive while we were there. We called the police and left when he got there. Heard the gunshot after we walked around the corner onto College.
If you hit a deer, do the humane thing and at least call the police so they can put it out of its misery and it doesn’t suffer. My wife and I both volunteer at Wild ARC and see this much too often. If the deer is not injured too badly, it can be rehabilitated at Wild ARC; but if not, we need to do the humane thing!
I know we’re all in a hurry and sometimes it can’t be avoided, but don’t leave it suffering on the side of the road in plain sight where all the kids walking to school see it. Nice way to start our day, just out walking our dogs and have to deal with someone else’s stupidity.
Oh, and we cleaned all your car parts off the road too, obviously you must have been speeding to lose that much of your car.
