"Fleeing the scene"??????? From hitting a deer??? (YES a moose is a deer) The moose was still standing, but somehow they know the vehicle in question has damage??? Alcohol is a factor???????? How in hades did they come to that conclusion??????? Man o man, if I see an Escape with damage, I'm gonna jump right on the phone and call the cops. . .NOT!!!!!!!!!!! This is one of the stupidest stories I've ever read in this paper. . .AND THAT IS SAYING A LOT!

Hit my first deer in 1980 & I called the police once I was home. They told me the only reason to call them after hitting an animal is if I needed a police report for my insurance company. Having nothing other than liability insurance, that was the end of it. Hit another deer 4 years ago. This time with cell phone in hand, I called the police from the side of the road. Once again I was told there was no need to call them; unless I was injured. Since I had comp on my car I called my insurance company. They also stated there was no need to call the police - body shop would confirm the damage. Why are they treating this like it was a crime? It was an animal, not a person. Since when is it illegal to drive away from the scene of an animal/vehicle collision? Hit a squirrel and not stopping now means you've been drinking? Or is it only if you hit certain animals? Is there a list of must-stop critters?
