Took a ride up to my In-laws yesterday in Andover, counted 8 dead deer on the side of rt. 80 from 287 to exit 19.

Are people seeing a high amount of dead deer on the side of roads?

Had one hit in front of my house this morning. I heard a gunshot and ran outside to check out what was happening. A cop came up to me and told me a woman hit a deer and he had to "put it down". He said he pushed it off the road and pointed to the area.


After everyone left I went over to check it out and it was STILL ALIVE. No bullet holes. The cop missed completely and left the deer to suffer.

Wyckoff had one impaled on a fence this morning. Ther police are not permitted to shoot them. They had to wait for animal control which took a while.

I can understand the chief's concern for discharging a firearm in a non life threatening situation, but if you can get close enough and shoot towards the ground it should be ok. We use a .22 in Franklin Lakes.

Plenty of dead ones on 80 and 287....Think the state would clean em up.

There are few out there that are literall 4 or 5 months old with just the skin/bones remaining.[down]
