Deer..animal rights..and death How do you all stand on the idea of humane deer killing out of season? Here in NE Ohio, we have a horrible deer problem. Not only to they eat everything in people's landscapes, they cause death: Three killed, Falls man hurt in interstate accident caused by deer Associated Press LODI, Ohio - A minivan trying to avoid three deer ran across the Interstate 71 median and collided with another vehicle in northeast Ohio Tuesday, killing the driver and her two children and injuring the driver of the other vehicle, the State Highway Patrol said. The minivan, driven by Hilda Hanbali, 43, of Hilliard near Columbus, was headed north when she apparently lost control about 7 a.m., the patrol said. The vehicle went across a median near Lodi, in Medina County about 35 miles southwest of Cleveland. She was killed along with her daughter, Ilham Hanbali, 18, and 8-year-old son, Adam Hanbali. The driver of the southbound minivan, John Zielinski, 43, of Cuyahoga Falls near Akron, was taken by helicopter to Akron General Medical Center, where he was listed in serious condition. The southbound lanes were closed for about three hours after the collision. "She decided to swerve to avoid the deer," said patrol Lt. G.A. Westover. "That's the probable scenario. Most people are animal lovers and don't want to hurt a deer. Most people don't have skills to safely make an evasive maneuver at a high speed." Something has to be done about the deer population. Everytime something comes up, the animal rights advocates get into a snit. I love animals just as much as the next gal, but when they start walking onto the freeway and causing deaths, its time to do something. Would you swerve to avoid a deer? A deer/car collision is nasty in itself. This is one reason that I decided to have full coverage on my vehicles here. I work in deer country and don't want to take the chance that I will hit one of those silly beasts.
