That's terrible. What kind of sicko does that? Glad the truck driver wasn't seriously hurt.

Ok that got a legitimate 'ughhhh' from me. I realize deer sometimes jump over bridges accidentally (one of my professors had that situation to deal with once in a residential neighborhood), but doing it deliberately is sick. It almost doesn't matter if the deer was dead or alive, though if it was alive, that's of course even worse.

I wouldn't cry if that jackhole (and more than likely a buddy or 2) were thrown over an overpass with a rope around their neck.

/Provided the road was closed first of course.

it is always sad to see a deer take its own life like that. If the deer only realised that there are a lot of caring people out there that could help thru troubled times, then it might go on to live a life more fulfilled.

So wait... after this happens, he pulls into a gas station and "stays the night" where some stranger finds him THE NEXT DAY and apparently calls the authorities.
That doesn't make any sense.

Actually, the article says he called the authorities before pulling into the gas station, and the incident occurred around 12:30 am. The woman just happened to stop at the same gas station around 8:30, see the damage, take photos and make a comment to the reporter, but authorities were already on the case.

My best guess, it was a couple of teenagers who thought it would be funny and only considered what the truck might do to the deer, and not the other way around.

Not quite the same thing, but back in the 1930s, my Great-uncle Fred (maternal grandmother's brother) was a truck driver in Illinois. Trucks were smaller then, not a s big as semis today, so deer hits were more serious.

One night, he hit a deer that came up over the hood and through the windshield on the driver's side of the cab. Uncle Freddy had the deer's front legs on either side of his head and still kicking, as it was still alive. He got the truck to a stop and then sat there holding the legs and hooves away from his head until the deer bled to death. He said it seemed to take forever to die.

Why didn't he get out of the truck? He sat in there in the truck, holding the deer's leg while it bled to death?

to add to that some einstein didn't realize the height from the ground to overpass. didn't realize deer carcass to height of semi.

'Cause deer hooves are sharp and dangerous. They were on either side of his head, kicking. My guess is he couldn't let go long enough to unhook his seatbelt and open the door, or he'd get his ear sliced off.

Very probably. And they're probably still hiding. It totally sounds like something kids would do and laugh stupidly right up to the moment the truck went skidding off the road, at which point they were like "OH SHIAT RUN!"

My uncle and my cousin were driving a semi through New York state in the '80s during an independent truckers' strike. As my uncle was driving under an overpass, someone threw a crate of tomatoes off, and it carried the windshield into his lap. My cousin was in the sleeper at the time, and he climbed down and stuck his head out the window and directed my uncle over two lanes of traffic to the side of the road. No major injuries, just cuts and scratches, and a severe case of fudged chonies for my uncle.

Seatbelt? In the 1930s?

A reindeer would have made a much larger hole than that, though not quite as big as one made by a moose or yeti.

You say that like you think it's ok. If that's true they should tie a rope to the testicles of the teenagers and toss them over a bridge, having first added armor the the semis going under the bridge and telling the drivers what the asshats did. And make sure the whole thing is on the national news of all 3 networks.

/ tell Fox the teenagers are Obama workers for more airtime.

Or they didn't realize how heavy it would be once they tried to dangle it over the side.

We recently had a teenager die falling off an overpass while throwing rocks/iceballs at interstate traffic. Maybe karma crosses state lines.
