    Why is this news?

    Between my time working the road and working part time as a wrecker driver, I have shot more deer than at any point in my youth while hunting.

    And then people show up and fight over the carcass.

    Is it now politically incorrect to call it a buck?

    School went into lockdown because a boy/guy deer was spotted on it's campus? Would the school have done that for a girl/gal deer?

    Don't know about anyone else, but this phrasing struck me as amusing....

    Because this happened in coastal, meaning urban CA. There are very few deer hit by cars on that half of CA. In my 14 years at my PD I have heard of exactly one deer being shot by my PD. There have been mabye 6 deer hit by cars as they come into town. And we are at the edge of civilization in the Bay Area where I work. From one edge of town there isn't a city for at least 30 miles. We actually get called to mountain lion and bobcat sightings (people don't know the difference between the two sometimes) more than deer vs. car incidents. We get called to the mountain lion sightings because they do attack people out in the woods around here from time to time. They also like to munch on dogs and cats.

    You really have to go way up into the sierras to run into a lot of deer. Or out in the boonies of our county. One in the city? That is rare.

    Agreed. If they wanted to write a news story about every time a deer gets put down by us, they would be writing 2-3 stories a day on average.

    Heck, I can go into the various ballistic abilities of .45/.40/.357 Magnum vs a deer head. I've used all three to dispatch suicidal deer on the roadside.

    One Christmas night I was not on duty for the PD, but I was at home on-call with the wrecker. Got called to assist with removing a stuck deer from a roadside ditch. It was apparently stuck in the mud and snow. I get there and there is this HUGE 10-12 point buck obviously very pissed off, up to it's hips in muck, unable to get out. They wanted me to extend my boom out and use a snatch rope to lift this critter out. Number 1, I'm not getting anywhere near a live undomesticated buck with a rack that big, 2 he was really pissed off, and 3 he's not stuck in the muck, his back legs are broke from someone running his ass over. The hippie family who called it in was mortified when I smoked it with my G21C. The road deputy showed up and called his wife to bring his truck so he could load it up and take it home. Said it was the best looking deer he saw all season.

    I stopped last year when a woman hit a deer with her car and it must have shatered the back legs. The animal pulled itself a few yards on it's front legs and just laid down, still alive.

    This lady was screaming bloody murder to call 911 and get a vet to the accident right now! I told her to go back to her car and make that call and then I dispatched it. She almost passed out. I consoled her and said it was the humane thing to do. Vets don't make roadside calls.

    It's sad that people don't understand that. We don't have the luxury of waiting on a vet even if there was one in our AO. I don't hunt anymore, I'm too fuzzy towards critters, but I'll put an injured critter down without hesitation.

    True, a deer in an urban part of Escondido is fairly big news, like .5 inches of snow in Seattle. But deer are a nuisance in rural parts (wish I could get one to snack on the blackberries in my backyard but noooooo, not a chance . . . ). Heck, we had some EcoTwits trying to harass the local game agent when he had to go into the neighborhood to cull some aggressive coyotes.

    True urbanites are some of the stupidest people when it comes to putting an injured or dying animal down. They'd rather the animal suffer a painful death waiting for a vet rather than to humanely end it there.

    We have suicidal squirrels, raccoons and possums by the gazzilion around here. They're giving the lemmings a run for the money.

    San Pasqual High is in between a fairly large park and a golf course in S. Escondido. There has always been lots of wildlife in that area. There is also quite a bit of uninhabited land to the south.

    This really should be no big surprise.
