Prius down again

This is what the latest deer encounter did. No, I was not hurt.
The damage may be somewhat limited, I hope. I really don't want a new car especially car payments!

I am glad you were not hurt, but it must have been scary. Mom had a deer crash-land on her car back in the fifties on the way home from Pittsburgh. She wasn't hurt, but the car was totaled.

No, I was not hurt.

Any news about how the deer is doing?

Yes. It was apparently killed on impact as it is in the ditch next to the road. One fewer overgrown rodent with hooves as Maria calls them.

People around here insist that whistles on the front bumpers keep the deer and moose away. Need to get some for the new Prius. Seemed to work on the old car.

First of all the deer came running fast. I doubt it would have heard a cannon. Second - the whistles seem to fall off everybody's car around here. I had them on an older car and they lasted less than a month. Third a state trooper said they see as many accidents with whistles as without. The problem is too many people and too many deer trying to occupy the same space. We need better hunters and more licenses perhaps.

. . . or less people.

The US government seems to be working on fewer people but not in our neighborhood. We have natural gas of all sorts but no oil.

I guess I could say "oh, deer!" Anyway I'm glad you were not hurt.

I'm with MadPriest ... fewer people. The deer were here first.
