Five Deer Leap to Deaths From W.Va. Garage

Five Deer Leap to Deaths From W.Va. Garage

2 hours, 53 minutes ago

RANSON, W.Va. - Either they misjudged the distance or they couldn't take the traffic. For reasons that mystify authorities, five deer that made their way onto the top of a five-story parking garage suddenly leaped to their deaths Sunday.

Police Cpl. Steve Cox found the does' bodies on a service road to the Charles Town Races & Slots, next to a security van they'd narrowly missed.

"They took the plunge," he said. "It was just absolutely weird."

A woman called police when she saw the deer falling, and Cox said he found scratches and animal hair on the fifth floor, indicating that's where they had been.

It's unclear how the deer got into the garage, but Cox said they may have become frightened after getting trapped. Cars moving through the garage may have spooked them, he said.

Or they could have been fooled by trees that can be seen from the top of the garage, mistakenly thinking they were close to home.

The carcasses were given to passers-by for butchering.

"Toto, we're not in a Blue State anymore." How many passer-by takers would you get in SF or Boston? There, you'd need someone "official" to drag off and waste the carcasses.

My thoughts exactly. I have eaten road-kill deer.

But those weren't dropped from a 5 story garage either. Probably a lot of bruised meat.

Dear Children,

I will be a little late getting to your houses this year because of the untimely demise of Donder, Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, and Vixen.

Expect me sometime between Dec. 26 and Jan.1. I am busy training their replacements right now.

Sincerely,

Santa

Obviously distraught, these deer clearly gave their lives
in protest against the evil slaughter of their kin every year. Imagine seeing your kin killed and butchered to feed
a vorocious pack of bipedal predators.

Fie, FIE! I say.

Have some more Bamburger?

The deer were vegan Buddhist pacifists engaging in a symbolic gesture of suicide out of frustration with the repressive administration's foreign policy

Flying reindeer are known to teach their young
to fly by nudging them off of tall buildings.
Authorities are unaware of how many deer flew
successfully.

What does Mrs. Claus do with the reindeer on Christmas Eve?

They go into town and blow a few bucks.

My thread was the 2nd on the subject to they closed it. Make comments here. The point I heard on the radio this morning is how they got past security to gain access to the 5th floor of the garage. What story did the deer give the security guard? "Uh, we forgot our cards but we do park here. Can you let us up?"

On a serious note - they had the same problem (animals jumping for no reason - this time off a cliff) in Sonoma last year - I believe it was sheep or cows though.

Ick.
