    This is so very sad……in 2011 my 80 & 79 year old Uncle & Aunt (80 & 79) went out for a motorcycle ride in Granville, NY. A deer jumped between my Uncle and the windshield on the bike, she was thrown and went face first into the pavement. He got the bike under control and then just tipped over and died at the scene, she died a week later.

    We have invaded the home of our wildlife and it’s very sad when these things happen, we have to do something to protect both.

    This boy was only 23 and had the rest of his life ahead of him and my condolences to his family.
