Default Nothing against badgers

or their kin, but I would gladly hit one of them over a deer - of which we are being totally overrun here in the eastern part of the States. Even deep into the city, the deer are everywhere. Even into the 'hood. Recently two deer busted into a McDonalds on New York Ave NE here in Washington DC. This is an urban decay area where the drug dealers don't always feel safe - so when the crime scene tape was all wrapped around the building I thought it was a shooting. Turned out the deer charged into the building with several people becoming injured trying to escape the deer's horns.

It turns out that there are now more deer in the US than when the first Europeans came to the New World - and they are eating folk's yards, particuarly in the winter when forage is short. I have a friend who suffered more than $10,000 worth of damage to his yard! Me, I would have venison in my freezer as a result.
