The deer saga may be an old Woody Allen story but I had a cousin who was
an intern at a 911 dispatch unit in Pennsylvania and he sent me a tape of a
911 call that they received from a man who hit a deer and thought he
killed it. The deer did recover in the back of his car and trashed both
the inside of his car and this guy's head. He finally pulled over,
stabbed the deer and got out to make this 911 call because his head was
really chewed up. In the midst of making the call a dog came over to the
phone booth and wanted the deer! The guy was yelling at the dog while
on the phone and ended up getting bit in the the guy stabbed the
dog with his knife, not killing him but sending him away howling.

While all this is going on you can hear people at the 911 unit laughing
at him because all this guy can figure out is that he is on the corner of
a "Stop-and-Go" that sells coffee. He was clearly disoriented and upset!
