My wife was driving across Cannock Chase at night when a stag jumped the hedge and landed on the bonnet of her car,trashing the bodywork and injuring himself terribly.The poor thing was struggling in the road crippled and trying to stand.Luckily the vehicle following her was a Park Ranger who despatched the stag,calmed Lynne and saw her on her way.

Yes I lived in Duluth 30 years. I discovered the methods to avoid hitting deer:

1 - have after-market REALLY BRIGHT highway driving lights. Rarely do deer jump out in front of cars coming from both directions at once. Buy good ones and transfer them to new cars.

2 - Slow Down!

There was no rule you HAD to drive the maximum speed posted.

I NEVER hit a deer, one of my sisters did with my '63 VW bug.

That is NOT because I did not see deer, but rather that I did and had enough time to slow down or even stop.

Being young and foolish once I hit and killed a farm dog.

I quit being foolish.

Walter J McCarthy Jr

Walter J McCarthy Jr arrived in Duluth at 1900 September 24, 2015. She loaded her coal cargo in Superior last Saturday the 19th. So that is five days which is normal time. Across Lake Superior, through the Soo Locks, down the St Mary's River to and across Lake Huron to Port Huron, then down river to the plant. I do not know specifically which electric power plant she went to in Michigan. But they all are alongside the St. Clair River, Lake St. Clair and Detroit River.
