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.
