    I am a bit shaken up having just nearly hit a deer on the way to work this morning :sad1:

    It ran straight across the road in front of me and I had to brake hard but, just as I accelerated again, it ran back out and stopped right in front of my car. I don't think I actually hit it and it ran off again but I'm pretty shaken (and I imagine the poor deer doesn't feel much better) :sad2:

    Why are animals so stupid :confused3

    That happened to us a few months back, 3 ran out across the road, it was pitch black so we only saw them at the last second, missed the last one across by about an inch.

    Glad your ok :hug:

    Apparantly road accidents involving deer have been on the increase in the past few years.

    I'm glad to hear you're OK.

    So glad that you are OK, I bet it was a bit of a shock, I remember a deer running out in front of me in Scotland about 4 years ago, it frightened me, *** it ran in front of me and then back again from where it had come, living in London it really is not the norm for me, the most I usually contend with are cats and dogs although did have a rat run in front of me about 3 weeks ago!!

    Joh, I know how you feel!! :hug: We live in an area where theres a lot of deer and last year one jumped out about a foot in front of my car! Luckily it jumped straight out of the way again as I wouldn't have had time to stop. My Mums friend had one land on the roof of a hired minibus she had a while ago- Actually on top of roof....

    I hope you're feeling better now. :hug: :hug: :hug:
