A resident approached the Main Gate on Saturday, December 5, to report a vehicle vs. deer incident. The driver stated she was traveling on McWhorter Drive at approximately 10-15 MPH when a small deer ran in front of her vehicle. Although she was able to miss the body of the deer, she did strike the hind legs. None of the vehicle’s occupants sustained any injuries; however, there were minor damages to the front of the vehicle. The severity of the injuries required that the deer be dispatched.
