@Joshua_Fleming I saw this and I was like “DeerCrusher has a team mate?”

On a side note. Very sad. We all know the deer isn’t okay but hopefully all the passengers are fine. A lot of emotional scarring for them, as nobody wants to be in an aviation accident, especially not one involving wildlife.

I think a delta CRJ-200 hit a deer while landing in MN. I’m wondering how a deer can get onto the runway in the first place…

Well then, how did a deer get on the runway?

Must have gotten over/around a fence. Deer aren’t really the brightest animals.
