Tragedy....


I come today with a heavy heart....
This weekend turned out to be a 
most sad time....

Saturday we were going to take a 
quick trip to LaCrosse....
While driving down the road.... 
out of a ravine next to the road a
deer leaped out and hit our van.

The damages done to the van are 
not that of big deal to us 
BUT what happened to the deer is....
We didn't see her and I am certain she
didn't know where she was leaping when
leaving the ravine.  It happened so fast....
She ran right into the drivers side....

Mike stopped and ran out to see if 
she was okay but it was too late.
We all cried....

The Sheriff arrived and made a report 
of the accident.  
He said he would take care 
of contacting the deers family.
He was very sad.

I talked to Daisy when I got back home 
and she said she didn't think she was a relative as
she hadn't heard anything yet.

We went back later and she was gone....
I guess her family came and got her.
We are so sorry this happened....
  
So today I may not be visiting anyone's
blog....I have to get the van fixed....



Later -- Remington --
we are so sorry this happened to her....
May she R.I.P.
-- out!

So sorry for the deer. I would be sad too. Anyway, glad no human was hurt. From the look of the car, it must have been a schock.

Oh Rem
We are so very sorry about the deer.
There have been a lot of accidents like that around our parts too!!
Deer are so fast and they forget to look both ways.

We are very thankful you, Beth and Mike are ok. That was certainly a lot of damage to your van.
Hugs your BFFF

I'm so sorry. Accidents happen and the poor deer was probably very confused. At least she didn't suffer. She will be remembered.

Oh Remington, that is so typical of you and your family to think more of the poor deer than what happened to your car, even though it sustained so much damage. Mum would have been just the same. We know how much you love all living things and we send big hugs, hope you are all okay.

Oh Rem!!!! I am so very sorry. I know all of you must be very shaken. We hit a deer a couple years ago, we were in a small car. It was on my passenger side and I saw his eye look at me as we hit him. It is a really big shock. I am so glad you were in a van and not a small car and that you are all safe and well!!!!

Elyse and Riley said...

Wow, scary! Glad you all were okay though...so sorry about the deer. :(

Ann said...

Oh that is very sad. So sorry. I had the same thing happen to me several years ago. It was 6 months after I had gotten my new car and it ended up being over $10,000 worth of damage.

That is so sad, Remington. The deer always make Mom sad when she sees them by the side of the road. We are very glad you and your family were not hurt. Soft woos and gentle hugs to her family.

May the innocent victim find peace and road-free space to run over the Rainbow Bridge. May you and your family understand that it was not preventable and while a horrible tragedy was not your fault...We send soft woos to heal the pain.

Hi Sweety, I am so sorry to read this. I am glad that all of you are ok and safe. I talked to my deer friends Fawna and Callie, but they didn't know who it might be. Call me later if you are feeling up to it please. I loved your treats you made and I miss you as always. I hope you don't mind but they wanted a picture of us for the Valentine Ball over at Rangers place so I sent them one with both of us, that my Mom fixed up. I hope that was ok, if not I will tell them not to use it.

Loveys and hugs your Sasha

I am so sorry. We have lots of deer near our beach place and I've always been worried about them.

Kathy said...

Oh dear, how sad for the deer!
From the look of the damage she REALLY hit the van hard!
I hope everyone in the van was OK!!
Vehicles can be repaired but poor deer! Sometimes they don't look both ways when crossing the road!

I am sorry this happened, Rem!
Hugs,
Kathy & Molly

Oh Remi, we are so very sorry. It really does suck when animals and vehicles collide. We will purr for that sweet deer.

Sending all of you hugs and gentle headbutts.
