Road kill near Pittsburgh airport...

I saw a large roadkill deer on the way to the Pittsburgh airport first thing this morning. It looked like it had its skull plate sawed off. Anyone see this?

No.... but I traveled from Oil City to New Castle today and saw 3 different roadkills with broken off antlers.

I drive it every day and didn't see any this morning going north. Where at?

Have seen three road kill coyotes though in the past month by PIT.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Absolutely!

[For the record, that doesn't include me. I just see the results about once or twice a week now.)

We stayed at the Comfort Inn Sunday night. It was lying in the median strip Monday morning. IIRC, it was about a third of the way to the airport.

Deer have been mixing with motor vehicles, since before all of us were born.
In fact, I use to take scouting reports from a over-the-road truck driver who made sightings at night.
It was long before trail cams were invented.

Yes, I saw it yesterday at about 3:15 PM. Top of it's skull was sawed right off.
Thats a new one. Usually they just take the whole head.
