Donna the Deer Lady Finally Gets It

Wow, maybe Donna the Deer Lady really did reveal how stupid all the Transportation Departments in the northern states are when they put those signs in all the wrong places - Kidding - Actually Donna finally gets it, so we can all give her a break now!
This is an update from yesterday's post:
 Please Move the Deer Crossing signs
But apparently Donna now gets what everybody else already knew. Originally she just wanted to alert people to the problem. The Radio Host at the end of that interview promised to spread the word which apparently has happened since the recorded call  has now hit close to 6.5 million Youtube views.
There has been a follow up interview posted last Wednesday (Oct 17, 2012) . Donna who has now been dubbed "Donna the Deer Lady" has thanked the Y94 Radio Host for being kind to her on that original first interview.

"I never really thought about it enough to realize that I was kind of being ridiculous"
There has been however and follow up interview with Donna who said she has been teased by Family members, friends, neighbours and co-workers. She said children in the neighbourhood have shoved print outs of Deer Crossings in her mailbox.  They woke up one morning and someone put a plastic life-sized Deer on their front lawn. Below is the updated follow up interview.
"I mean, criminy Christ people, I get it now!"

It will be interesting to see if at some future point this really was a hoax of sorts. Conspiracy Theories are already being speculated about. Back in 2011 a similar incident caught attention of many readers. An individual named Tim Abbott from Crown Point sent a letter to his local paper in 

Letters to the Editor: "Move the Deer Crossing to Where There's Less Traffic"

Tim Abbott, Crown Point 
Hmmmmmm  ????? Then there was a later update to that "Letters to the Editor" posting on June 13, 2012. Seriously ?
  Deer crossing letter read 'round the world


Hmmmm, wonder who 'Donna the Deer Lady' could really be ?  Perhaps Ms Donna Abbott ?

And on Yahoo News today:


On an informative serious note however comes this fact based News item on Car accidents involving Deer being on an increase. Or in Sweden Moose accidents.
Deer vs. car crashes on the rise as wildlife hits the road 
The article said that the report from State Farm Insurance says that most Deer vrs Car road collisions have in November which appears to be a peak month. Unfortunately there are no guarantees you won't hit a deer even if you drive with High beams on, watch for Deer Crossing Signs or even mount those deer whistles on your front bumpers to scare them off. The only sure guarantee they said for avoiding these Deer collisions is to move to Hawaii.
