Here a deer there a deer everywhere a deer deer! Ole Shawnee has a problem Ee i ee i OH NO! Another deer!

I began my day as usual. I got up, kissed my wife and child good-bye as they slept then left to go to work. It was around 6:50ish. I made the turn on to Renner when all of a sudden a flash of brown and white caught my eye then WAM! I hit the deer. I watched in my rearview as the deer hit the asphalt, stood up and ran off the road. Me? I kept driving, where there is one deer there are five more behind it. The damage was very minimal, a smashed headlight and bent hood. I’ll post some pictures later. Continuing my drive to work I began to laugh. A few days prior to my accident a protestor stood at the general location where I hit the deer speaking out against the decision to decrease the deer population in the park. I heard that the normal density for these animals should be 60 per square mile, in Lenexa the density is 200 per square mile. Hey maybe someone should to a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Birds” in Lenexa and call it “Deer”. I read in the Shawnee Dispatch a few resident concerns where how inhumane it would be. Really? Inhumane? So I guess its more humane for the deer to get hit by a car receive a broken rib which will puncture the lung leading to a very slow and painful death choking on its own blood. Or better yet, don’t do anything and let them all starve out. Inhumane to have to hunters kill off the deer?
