Had an extremly close encounter with a deer last night on my way back from Garans after going to the cinema. I was doing about 65 down an unlit stretch of dual carriageway and saw a small deer run across the road about 50 metres in front of me and then disappear into the hedgerow. While I was busy watching it, it's Mum ran out after it. straight in front of me!
I slammed on the brakes and swerved sharply to the right and I have no idea how I missed it. Needless to say my pulse was racing for the rest of the journey home!
