Fargo woman completely missing the point behind deer-crossing signs
MSN.com ^ | 10/13/2012

Posted on 10/13/2012 4:26:56 PM PDT by South40

Everyone, meet Donna. Donna has some problems. Over the last few years, she's been involved in several deer-related car accidents, and with her frustration reaching a tipping point, she decided to call Fargo, N.D., radio station Y94 to voice her complaint on deer-crossing signs.

Note also, she completely ignored the logic of the explanation. She is definitely a democrat.

I’m not an obama supporter.

A few weeks back I was driving my dog to the vet. The scenery was very nice and there was no shoulder to park for a spell. Then I saw a deer crossing sign. I just had to stop... and wait for deer to cross.

At my age, I can do silly stuff. No one saw me, not even a deer.

They probably crossed behind you. Have you checked your bumper stickers since than?

Just catch the deer and send them to Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson.

He can send them to Guam to counterbalance the extra Marines.

This lady can stop her helpless deer-killing rampage and Guam doesn’t tip over!

Those deer crossing signs should probably be lit up so the deer can see them at night.

I love this..listened a couple times last night. The deer should totally cross on school crosswalks so they have a crossing guard to help them. LOLOLOL

I think she is trolling the radio station..but then again there are plenty of people this stupid out there.

When I was a kid I used to wonder how the deer knew they were supposed to cross there. Never actually saw a deer cross at a deer crossing.

The new neighborhood coyote looks to be the sort who’d be glad to escort the deer to the nearest formal crossing ~ if it came to that.

oh.
Next time I’ll make a U turn at the deer crossing sign so the deer don’t cross behind me.

I can’t see my bumper stickers. It’s dark outside.

(it’s scary playing stupid)

When I was a kid I always kept my eye out for “Chief Falling Rock” when we got into the mountains. Never saw him either.

Well, it would be discrimination not to allow coyotes to take deer crossing guard jobs.

First of all, if you look at the signs, it should be obvious to the deer that they are expected to leap across the highway, not casually stroll across the road. It’s their own faoult if they get hit.

For me, just the opposite. At first I thought this bimbo was legit, but as she went on, I could tell it was a put up job, a prank. She was good, I'll grant you that, but toward the end, she couldn't keep the mirth from sneaking into her voice, just enough to give away the game.

Also, no one, not even Obama or Biden, is that dumb.

Having lived in Fargo, I can tell you that people that dumb would freeze to death. It is also a state sport to test the gullibilty of visitors. One old fellow I knew from a previous life worked as a guide for a major tourist museum in the western part of the state. He actually had people convinced that Sitting Bull was a personal friend of his who ran a gas station in Belfield now.

That’s how they do it in Maine for the moose. I never figured out how the lights are triggered for a crossing though.....trip wires or lasers, maybe. ;)

Maybe they could put a solar panel on the signs. Ohhhh....that wouldn’t work. They catch fire. Then you’d have a bunch of coyotes standing around making s’mores.

Law of unintended consequences.

If the deer don’t get munched by vehicles, that means there are more living deer.

More living deer means more and more living deer.

Until there’s a deer problem.
