    I was driving home from work when almost right in front of my house there was a deer in the road! It did that whole "deer in the headlights" thing as I slammed on my breaks, then it bolted into my neighbor's driveway. I guessing it ran into his back yard and then to the ally.

    It's odd because I in no way live in a rural area, far from it I'm only a few miles from downtown Louisville. Such a large animal to be in a suburban neighborhood.

    Glad you managed to break in time and miss hitting the deer.

    I live in an area that deer are extremely common. Saw full grown buck run across a highway once, actually jumped over a small car. It was insane.

    I once saw a wolf walking around my neighborhood. It was rather creepy the first time I saw it. Foggy night and in the middle of the road this huge, gray wolf just standing there staring at us.

    Almost hit a wild hare with my mountain bike in a blind corner going 30 KPH tonight. I could already see myself flying over the bars.

    Speaking of rats, one of my teachers placed a cup over one and then she stomped down on the cup! That rat had it coming.

    I can only say for some reason I'm reminded of the SNL skit were Will Ferrel in the middle of a family fight yells out.

    Maybe your city. We've had deer out on the major roads every once in a while. I've heard coyotes yowling from my apartment window, and I saw one crossing the grounds of the university last year.

    Could've been someone's "pet" that got loose. I had a cousin once who had a pet doe for awhile.

    Until it finally got free and ran off.
