The other day Aimee reported that a deer had sauntered across the road in front of her. In Lansing. Crossing Michigan Avenue. At first, I thought “Those dumb deer”. After some longer reflection I amended myself.
A car outside the city is usually travelling between 55 and 80 miles per hour. A car on Michigan avenue doesn’t travel any faster than 40, and has a lot more time to see a deer ambling across the road. The kicker? You can’t discharge firearms inside the city.
Dumb deer? I’ve decided that deer is pretty smart. Progressive, in fact! I suppose it can saunter wherever it pleases!
