Rudolph, the Red Shirt Roadkill

This morning while I was driving home and about a 3/4 of a mile from my house, on State Street, I saw one of the strangest things I have ever seen; a dead deer on the side of the road...wearing a red t-shirt. Not like draped over it but like you see when someone puts a sweater on a dog in the winter. It literally had its front legs in the sleeves, head through the hole. I drove past a good 200 yards and stopped. I threw it in reverse and backed up to get a better look. I was pretty tired and didn't know if I was hallucinating. Indeed, a dead deer wearing a red t-shirt. I wonder if it is still there. If it is, I'll take a picture and maybe post it if 'The People' (that's you) desire it.

Yes, please go back and take a picture, that is so weird. Maybe it's someone's pet deer that they regularly dressed in clothes?? Why does it make it somehow sadder that the deer is wearing a shirt, like not only did it die, but also lost it's dignity.

Umm, yeah! I can't believe you didn't take a pic right then. When I saw your facebook status, i thought that you meant that it was bloody... I gotta see this though.
