Dear Deer Reader,
Yesterday, I was listening to the following sound clip on Doggystyle’s blog. For those of you that can’t listen, which is a shame because it is greatness, it is a call into a radio station from a woman named Donna. She is very concerned about the deer population crossing the street. She is trying to raise awareness in the community so they will move the deer crossing signs to safer places for the deer to cross. She suggested maybe asking the deer to cross in school zones.
I think she has a point. We do need to change the crossing signs so that they are not near the highway. I suggest maybe we move them to the middle of the woods, or maybe even to Middle Earth. Personally, I don’t know why deer hunters didn’t think of this years ago.
We, the citizens of the world, need to take heed of this real life issue. It is no laughing matter. Then I started thinking there is a plethora of animals that are crossing in the wrong places. Those pesky armadillos are always in my way. Those squirrels are beyotches.
We need to take a stand. Every comment on this blog is a signature on the petition. This petition’s goal: to entice the deer to cross at crosswalks that are also for humans.
Lady or Not…Here I Come!
