That's terrible. What kind of sicko does that? Glad the truck driver wasn't seriously hurt.

Begoggle: So wait... after this happens, he pulls into a gas station and "stays the night" where some stranger finds him THE NEXT DAY and apparently calls the authorities.
That doesn't make any sense.


Actually, the article says he called the authorities before pulling into the gas station, and the incident occurred around 12:30 am. The woman just happened to stop at the same gas station around 8:30, see the damage, take photos and make a comment to the reporter, but authorities were already on the case.

My best guess, it was a couple of teenagers who thought it would be funny and only considered what the truck might do to the deer, and not the other way around.

Ok that got a legitimate 'ughhhh' from me. I realize deer sometimes jump over bridges accidentally (one of my professors had that situation to deal with once in a residential neighborhood), but doing it deliberately is sick. It almost doesn't matter if the deer was dead or alive, though if it was alive, that's of course even worse.

You really think a deer was gonna hold still while they threw a rope around it, drove it to the bridge and tossed it over?


I never said it would be healthy. How many times have we seen the stories here about hunters who didn't properly make sure the deer was dead before loading it in the truck, or how many hunting stories are there about a bad shot or car accident where the deer limps off? Yeah. I know it's not very likely, but this is Fark - we've heard worse.

My neighbor was killed by some idiots who tossed a big rock off an overpass. To this day I'll slow down if I see people hanging out above the lane on an overpass.

mr0x: Aulus: Not quite the same thing, but back in the 1930s, my Great-uncle Fred (maternal grandmother's brother) was a truck driver in Illinois. Trucks were smaller then, not a s big as semis today, so deer hits were more serious.

One night, he hit a deer that came up over the hood and through the windshield on the driver's side of the cab. Uncle Freddy had the deer's front legs on either side of his head and still kicking, as it was still alive. He got the truck to a stop and then sat there holding the legs and hooves away from his head until the deer bled to death. He said it seemed to take forever to die.

Why didn't he get out of the truck? He sat in there in the truck, holding the deer's leg while it bled to death?


'Cause deer hooves are sharp and dangerous. They were on either side of his head, kicking. My guess is he couldn't let go long enough to unhook his seatbelt and open the door, or he'd get his ear sliced off.

it is always sad to see a deer take its own life like that. If the deer only realised that there are a lot of caring people out there that could help thru troubled times, then it might go on to live a life more fulfilled.

I wouldn't cry if that jackhole (and more than likely a buddy or 2) were thrown over an overpass with a rope around their neck.
