This is gross and grotesque. We have lots of deer here in Western Virginia. I've hit a few. I hit a few when I lived in California. But having such an unfortunate occurrence has never made me feel any desire to extirpate an entire species. We are doing enough of this inadvertently - -- surely we don't need to wish to 'KILL THEM ALL'. This is, simply put, disgusting talk. I really doubt that the deer were setting out, Mr Myro, to destroy your cars at the cost of their own lives. Let's not be foolish.
