...last friday on my way home from work. No one was hurt, and the deer
ran off after rolling off the side of my car. It happened so fast, I barely
remember it.

Here's a couple pics I took waiting to be towed --

Yep -- I'm surprised the deer actually walked away from that one. And that damage is nothing -- I've seen worse. Gotta love these Pennsylvania deer. They are tough one's for sure.

The only time I have ever seen a deer not walk away from getting hit is when they are hit by a coal truck, then there isn't to much left. Your car got off pretty light, it doesn't seem like that now but you were probably only go 40 if that. It is amazing how much damage can occur to these newer cars.

Did the deer run away or walk away? If it walked away then it probably went 100 yards and died. If it ran away it was just a little shaken up but for the most part probably ok. Enjoy and have a good day "bambi killer" :twisted:

I love wombats. Great picture. Reminds me of my local groundhogs. Now I have to come up with a picture. It won't be tonight though. Got a good one of a groundhog laying over a cat drinking out of the waterbowl...gotta find that one.

Click Autoplay on this basic flash slide show. Should give you a good idea of a groundhog. Just like the wombat:

The one pic gave you an Idea about how big there teeth are, those little things get mean if cornered thou :D They also make pretty big holes in the ground. There borough always has two entrances about 50 to 100 ft apart. Excellent diggers :D I also think they can feel you or anything walking on the ground because the ones out in the field are always hard to sneak up on. It was either that or they have excellent hearing and smelling. The closest you could get to them was about 50 to 75 yards :twisted:

Yep - MD ---they are for sure a pain to get rid of -- have to keep a big watch on 'em to keep my garden safe. I have to love the one I took pics of though...she's no longer with us, but we enjoyed wathing her for over 3 years. Got a couple good racoon ones too.

we have our garden fence burried a foot underground, that keeps em out! :-P

We tried smoking the bugger out of his tunnel system...but you could light the smoker in one hole, and two other holes 50 yrds apart would start spewing out smoke....darn annoying critters!

We had a racoon infestation to. But used some live traps and captured upwords of 5.

The easiest way I had found was a 243 with hole points :twisted: I know the animal people will yell at me but they didn't have to go and fix the tractors when they broke from hitting a groundhog hole :D

Thanks for the info ANTO from the PM on the down low :lol: I don't that last part just sounded funny :D, it looked like you got a whole family of racoons there :D

My mom hit a racon one night with my grandma's car, we stopped and got out and looked but we couldn't see any damage to the car. But sure enough the next day my grandma saw something wrong with the car. She was all like what did you hit, I forgot to mention we hadn't told her we hit anything the night prior. And even in the day light we still couldn't see anything wrong with it :D

MD...yep...the family of 'coons...mom, kids and grandkids are all still there. The amazing thing is that I thought I saw the Mom (the one in the slideshow) dead on the roadside last year. Next day I went to go get her and bury her and she was gone. Can you believe it? Next month she showed up limping, but still there...Guess she knew she just had to take care of the kids.
