Car hits deer carcass, two die

This is just another story on the animal that is the true threat to human life–deer, not wolves.

Brief story in the Denver Post.

    You’re absolutely right, Ralph.
    Here in Pennsylvania, 45,000 or so whitetails are killed on the state’s roads/highways every year. But that’s just the state Game Commission’s estimate. No one knows the true extent of the carnage.

    …and lest we not forget, debilitating diseases too … deer ticks and Lyme disease

    … nor ONE and ONE HALF MILLION car accidents per year.
