I was out this morning to finish my last cuts of this year. As I was beginning to slow for a stop light in the centre of town, I felt a thump from my enclosed trailer. I glanced in the mirrors, saw nothing, so I thought my mower may have rolled off its block and bumped the trailer wall. When I got to my next lawn, I was talking with the customer when I glanced toward the trailer and i thought I saw a splotch of red on the right fender. Upon closer examination, I saw a dark red wet substance. OH MY GOSH!!! That looks like blood. OH NO. Did I Hit & Run somebody? OH MAN, OH MAN. I starting shaking and thinking all kinds of bad things. So I quickly got back in the truck and drove back to the "scene" expecting to see ambulances and police everywhere. NOTHING. Just another normal day. ????? So I went and got a coffee, called the wife and told her about it. Then I saw an ambulance going in that direction and follwed it. But it kept on going and no sirens. Then I sees a SPCA truck at the location so I pulls over and they are dragging out of the corner of a parking area, a.........young deer, ...and a very dead one.
WHEW, I'm sad that I killed a dear, lucky that it didn't cause me any damage, BUT very, very thankful that it had not been a person.

I can do one better. last year i was pulling out of a very wealthy area of town doing about 25mph when a bear ran out in front of my 86 chevy truck. The bear made it safely under my truck but unfortunately got stuck under the axle of my 6.5x10 trailer carrying my zturn. i dragged the bear of about 30 feet until the trailer rolled itself over the bear. amazingly the bear got up and ran into the woods.
