Deer Blinded and Dead
My Mom and I were driving down to Nj last week and I spotted a deer struggling to get to the other side of the highway. This thing was a buck too. It was a couple hundred yards away from us when it tried to cut off a truck. The truck and deer both swerved and the deer kept on running until it ran past our car all the way behind us where it was hit by a Subaru. The deer flew up in the air and we saw the Subaru turn off to the breakdown lane to report the incident. It was a close call for us and the truck. Then when we got home we were trying to figure out why a deer just runs out into the highway like that.
We think the animal gets blinded by the headlights, but we don't know for sure.
