Sorry to hear that. Obviously there's nothing you could do but if it was killed instantly and neither you or the bike were hurt I would say that's the next best possible outcome.
Yep.Saw the biggest, burliest, meanest looking farmer reduced to tears when he hit and killed 2 fawns with his sickle bar mower while cutting hay.
Sorry to hear that ..it seems to be a common occurrence were I live... the Mom crosses the road first than the little one follows 10 seconds behind ...put deer whistles on my bikeI am very bummed. A little fawn, just in the spring of life, probably a month old at the most, jumped in front of me while I was riding down the narrow two lane road which leads to my house. I hit the brakes as hard as I could, but couldn't slow enough. Killed the little baby.:sobbing:
Mom was also on the side of the road, and she had to watch the whole thing. Went back to see if the fawn was dead instead of just severely injured, (it was), thankfully. Mom was next to fawn, trying to figure out why her baby wasn't moving. Very sad.
Deer whistles may have prevented that...
