People are Stupid, Ctd

Deer should not be encouraged to cross the highway…the state putting deer crossings in areas with high traffic is simply irresponsible.

A woman who identified herself only as Donna called up a local Fargo radio station to complain about the location of deer crossing signs. Donna the Deer Lady, as she’s now known, demanded to know why the Minnesota and North Dakota departments of transportation “allow these deer crossings to be in such high traffic areas.”

The video was uploaded to YouTube by the radio station and has gone wildly viral, hitting almost 2.5 million views in only ten days. Even Newt Gingrich chimed in.

Donna has been in three car accidents involving deer that occurred close to a deer crossing sign. Since the accidents, she has sent numerous letters to local newspapers and television stations, all of which have gone unanswered.

“Why are we encouraging deer to cross at the interstate?… It seems to me that it’s so irresponsible of us to allow these deer crossings to be in an area where these deer are so likely to be struck by oncoming traffic,” she told the radio station. “Wouldn’t you agree?”

“The government can direct the deer population anywhere they want to” she said. “All they have to do is move that deer crossing sign.”
