–Friday December 10 Approx. 7:30 pm My husband (YD) hit a 1 year old deer on his way home from work. He called me to ask my advice on the situation and I informed him to call the Local RCMP office and they would either deal with the deer or would refer him on to Lands & Forests who would either euthanize the deer or take it to a vet. He called the RCMP who refereed him on to Lands & Forests who said that they would send someone out Monday to deal with the animal. My husband told them that the animal was alive and they still said someone would deal with it Monday at the earliest. Thankfully a family member was willing to make the trip from Clementsvale to assist the animal {which I might add was being watch from the shoulder of the road by its mother and younger sibling).
