    Deer Hit on Hope Princeton..What to do?

    Ok. So if your driving the Hope Princeton at night and you come across a deer that has been hit by a vehicle and is unable to walk and just laying there suffering what would/could you do?? Shoot it? Illegal to discharge firearms on road. Stab it?? No cell service, but even if there was then what?

    Morally? Shoot it. But be prepared to pay the consequences if some reports that you shot it.

    Legally? There is sporadic cell coverage on that highway now. Call the rcmp and they should go shoot it or they will contact conservation.

    What would I do? . Wait till there were no vehicles and put it down with a. 22. Quick and quiet.

    Load it into my truck and take it to a nearby rescue.

    I think it was STEADY GIRL that would cut the wounded animal's throat until dead!
    Personally I would shoot it if safe and report it ASAP.

    Here is where the problem lies.... illegal to discharge firearms within certain distances of center-line of marked hwy, illegal to shoot an animal and not cancel a species tag. Even with a knife or other object, you are still harvesting the animal. I would hope that if RCMP or CO'S show up they wouldn't give you to much hassle. We all know what we would do in that situation. Reporting is good option as well

    Take a video of the struggling deer with your phone. Then stop the video, bonk it on the head/bleed it out, and either leave it or take it with you depending on it's condition.

    If you get stopped/reported you can show an officer your video to play into the ethics/morals being more important than laws. If you don't get stopped/reported, you have a 20 minute drive back to the nearest cell service and can decide if you want to report or keep for yourself.

    Either way, the deer needs to be put down quickly and safely. Any reasonable officer should agree, I don't see this being a big issue.
    What goes around, comes around. Think first, and always act with respect.
