Roadkill Deer

White-tailed deer roadkill is a common sight on rural roads in Indiana. In recent years, due to overpopulation, deer have become one of the leading causes of auto accidents here. They are starting to be seen in urban areas. I've seen several at night in my neighborhood in Fort Wayne, Indiana's second largest city!

I found this doe on the side of Yohne Road, just west of the entrance to Fox Island County Park, a nature preserve in southwest Allen County. She didn't look like she had been dead very long, but the flies were already buzzing around her.

I rarely see deer here during the day, but at night, Yohne Road is a dangerous place to drive because so many of them will jump out in front of cars.

I actually had a deer hit my car one day in 2008! It jumped out of the ditch in the background of the photograph, and slammed its head into the drivers side door of the car I was driving. After bouncing off the car, the deer got up and ran away!

The stream in the ditch along the road is the Little River, which flows from the southwest edge of Fort Wayne down to Huntington, where it joins the Wabash River. The land drained by the Little River was once a vast swamp. Drained in the late 19th Century, the former swampland is covered in corn and soybean fields today. A small section of the old wetlands are preserved in Fox Island Park.
