deer in trunkKALAMAZOO, Mich. — Police in Kalamazoo had a interesting morning when they opened a truck of a vehicle and got a wild escape.

A vehicle owner claimed to have a dead deer in the trunk, a deer that he had accidentally hit with his car on an outlying area roadway.  The man intended on utilizing the meat from the road kill to feed his family. A Kalamazoo Public Safety Officer asked if he could inspect the deer to see if it had been properly tagged and accounted for, the man agreed.

The Officer cautiously opened the trunk and was very surprised to find the deer very much alive.  Sensing freedom, the young deer sprang from the trunk, quickly acclimated itself with it’s new surroundings and made a run for it.  The deer fled into a nearby wooded area very much alive and not to be seen again.  The man was at a loss for words, obviously the deer was not as mortally wounded as he initially had thought.

Vehicle-deer crashes are a year-round problem in Michigan, especially during the spring and fall as the state’s estimated 2,000,000 deer are most active during these times.  Each year there are more than 60,000 vehicle-deer crashes reported in the State of Michigan.
