Hurting Bambi

Driving home from a late meeting last night I saw and felt something huge and brown hit my windshield. It scared the living daylights out of me! At first I didn't know what hit me and then I realized I'd hit a deer. I turned around and drove back to see if it was lying injured by the side of the road but it had disappeared. Lord knows what I would have done if it was still there - perform CPR? I figure it ran up to the side of the car, tried to leap over it and one of its hooves hit and shattered the windshield. I was pretty shaken up. There have been a lot of deer in town lately. We've seen them in front of our house early in the morning or running down the street at dusk and we live right in the centre of town.
