We came across 2 deer the other night while driving on the road. they were both at spearate locations abut a mile apart. it was about 7pm so we had lights on.
The first one jumped into a garden of a house! the second one was on a narrow road and really had nowhere to go. there were 2 embankments either side and a fence on top. So we stopped the car and dimmed the lights and waited 5 minutes or so and eventually he went back down the road and in an entrance to a field.
Anyway it prompted the question as to what is the best thing to do when you come across this. Is dimming the lights ok? I was afraid to turn them off in case he ran into the car and hurt himself (or us!). what is the best procedure?
