LOCALS UP IN ARMS; HIT-AND-RUN LEAVES MOTORIST BATTERED

11 posts in this topic

This just in....

A local man (a coworker of mine) was out minding his own business yesterday afternoon and enjoying the beautiful weather on his ATV when suddenly out of nowhere a deer slammed into him at a dead run from the left side rolling him and his ATV. He suffered a nasty abrasion on the top of his head and the upper left side of his face and forehead are a mass of burned flesh, torn muscles on his rib cage, and a fractured clavicle not to mention the damage to his machine.

Be advised, this is an extremely hot situation. The perpetrator left the scene of the accident as fast as it could and didn’t even stop to render aide. Local authorities are baffled saying the suspect is not known to be part of such an aggressive group of individuals but obviously this may change our understanding. Authorities issued a statement urging restraint for the local residents who are anything but sympathetic, calling for an area-wide deer hunt in search for the offender. The leader of the posse was reported to have stated, “Hit and run is what they do! They all look alike so we have no choice but to round them up and turn ‘em into table fare!”

Now back to your regularly schedule events of the day....

Kill'em and eat'em. It's the only logical thing to do.

Probably just some young buck out causing trouble. You really have to ask yourself where are the parents in all of this. With all of the absentee fathers can you really expect anything different. I'd really like to take a good shot at the father and really nail him to the wall. Make an example out of him.

I had the same thing happen to me a few years ago.

I'm driving down Larpenteur avenue in St. Paul, minding my own business, when a deer T bones me in the driver's side rear door of my Honda. Pretty sure he was speeding too, since he just hopped a 6 foot fence about 30 yards before he hit me. I stopped but he left the scene. Or at least he tried. He made it 50 yards.

Sounds like he's related to this antelope in Africa. Do we have an international cartel taking root?

The incident is true, although I did not find out for sure which day it actually happened. Apparently he was knocked unconscious for a while. He said when he was riding it was daylight then he got hit and the next thing he knows it's dark. It happened on a township road so not much traffic. I think he lives up near Perham or thereabouts. He's pretty sore today.

Authorities ID Rochester Motorcyclist Killed In Deer Crash

May 25, 2015 3:11 PM

 

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have identified a motorcyclist who died in a collision with a deer on the northern edge of Rochester.

The State Patrol says 40-year-old Timothy Myhre southbound on Highway 52 when the Harley-Davidson motorcycle was unable to avoid a deer that was crossing the roadway about 7:15 p.m. Friday.

The Rochester man died at St. Marys Hospital.

PS it was southern edge.  Can't trust the media for a second.  

US 52, near US 63 intersection.

    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
