Re: Not surprised

One of my exciting motoring moments (read "times i nearly cr*pped myself) was hitting a muntjac deer.

They're about the size of a dog and as solid as you'd expect a deer to be. The end result is a bit like hitting a badger on stilts. Doing the legal speed limit, honestly officer, of 70mph on a dual carriageway at 1am and the little bugger came out of nowhere. Almighty bang followed by the front and back ends arguing about who wanted to have less control as deer puree stole all their grip.

It's something I'll never forget - especially in the middle of the night after eating a lot of cheese...
