Twas a doe. Ran off into the woods... so who knows if it lived to run at another car or dropped in the woods later. :shrug:Oh my, that's unfortunate! At least a deer has sufficiently low mass and velocity compared to another vehicle. Damage looks like it was bodywork. The wheel well looks intact. Did the deer survive?
Downunder we call them "Roo" whistles to avoid hitting Kangaroo's, I put a pair on a car back 1975. One day another driver said to me "do they work", I said to him "dunno, haven't seen any roo's to know". > >You might want to install deer whistles...
I have them on my bike because instead of bodywork, those dents would be me!
That was one unlucky Emu Kevin, normally they just dust themselves off and disappear into the distance adding salt to the wound.@puffoluffagus bad luck! Damage very similar to a family member's Foz after hitting a big roo. A$11K to repair I believe.
@Subyroo I too have those "roo whistles" I'm now looking for an "emu whistle" as that is the only thing I've seriously hit in the outback - and it was a biggie. Pushed the bullbar on the ute back on its mountings about an inch; killed the emu.
