RIP little red car (and one small deer…)

Can you believe it- we have had another small crisis in our family!

Michaela hit a deer on the road next to Loch Eck the other day. The poor little thing was startled by the head lights and tried to get over the road back into the woods. Michaela had no chance to avoid it, as she was driving at over 50 MPH. It must have died instantly, flying up into the windscreen on Emily’s side.

It was only a small deer but what a lot of damage! Bonnet, grille, wing, subframe, radiator. Given the age of the car it is almost certainly a write-off.

But neither Michaela nor Emily were hurt, beyond a few bruises. It could have been so much worse- for us anyway. Not for the deer.

  1. Glad no one was hurt but you would think vegetararians would drive slower on country roads. Guns are better than cars for hunting! Her penance should be venison for a month.
