Right now I have way too many cats, because people in my neighborhood are foreclosed, walk away from their homes, leaving behind pets, invariably neither spayed nor neutered.

The cats wind up here, usually a pregnant female. Sometimes, I'm lucky enough to catch her and get her spayed before the blessed event. Sometimes not.

Also, since my house is on the edge of about 30 acres of desert, on a dead end street, it seems to be a spot people like to dump animals. A neighbor wound up with two really nice dogs this way.

It should be open hunting season on those who abandoned their animals in the first place...

As an astronomer, we often get "fear of the dark" threads. They include fear of falling off ladders, fear of being attacked in the dark by Mountain Lions, fear of being killed by bears, etc.

In reality, there's an average of one human killed in North America annually by bears, and the rate from Mountain Lions is far lower. That's statistically zero - about 1 in 300 million for each danger. Those people are in more danger of being killed by their own dog.

Deer, be afraid of the deer, most dangerous North American animal...... leaps through your windshield at 60mph and bludgeons you to death.

Yes, I've hit deer in both The Beast, and The BWH. Fortunately, the worst damage that happened to the BWH was that the passenger side of the car was covered in poo. When I hit a deer in The Beast the passenger side was covered in blood & poo, and the deer's antlers had put a crease in my fender.

I think if that thing hit me (the big white hooptie), I'd probably poo myself too.

What I don't understand, is why its always the right side of the car covered in poo? I remember when my dad hit a deer in one of his company cars years ago it was the passenger side again covered in poo.

I lived on the last street in town as I was growing up. People used to drop their unwanted animals off regularly. We never lacked a cat or dog when we wanted one. Some stayed a few hours, some stayed a few days. Some got hit and needed puttin' down.

The only vet we had was very farm-animal centric. No pound. No place for the unwanted to go.

We had the occasional wilding pack of dogs. I've dropped a few. I'd rather not have to fight those big suckers while walking through the woods.

Maybe you only hit deer that come from the right, because you have more reaction time when they're coming from the left (since they're out in the open street for longer)? Consider the direction that their poo shooter is facing when they're crossing from the right...

Interesting. I've been in two cars that have hit deer. I was driving he first time, and a doe crossed the road from right to left in front of me. Just as I was thinking deer sometimes travel with other deer, a fawn ran in front of my car. I slammed on the brakes, killing my engine because I forgot to use the clutch. My car stopped just as the fawn disappeared below my hood. I figured I'd killed it, or seriously wounded it, but I apparently just tipped it over. The fawn got up and ran away, without broken legs or any other visible injury.

I was a passenger in the second deer incident. We were driving to a state park in Utah near dusk, and I saw a deer in the road and warned the driver. He slowed down and drifted left, as the deer was walking right. But as we got closer, and almost passed it, the deer bolted left and crashed into our right bumper. Again, I expected the worst, but this deer also ran away with no broken legs or visible injuries. The Prius, however, had a dent in its bumper that you could have put a robin inside.

So, two deer strikes, and two right side poo patterns.
