This crosswalk is not for you, Ms. Deer.

Donna recently called Fargo's Y94 FM to rant about something that's been on her mind in the wake of three deer-related car wrecks -- those damn deer crosswalks (i.e., deer crossing signs) that seem to route deer onto busy roads. And from the sounds of it, she was serious.

Here's how Donna's rant began:
Donna: Over the past few years, I've been involved in three separate car accidents involving deer. Each of these accidents, they've occurred shortly after I've seen a deer crossing sign on the highway. My frustration is that Minnesota and North Dakota departments of transportation would allow these deer crossings to be in such high-traffic areas. I mean, I've even seen them on the interstate. Why are we encouraging deer to cross at the interstate? I don't get it.

Host: Are you kidding?
Believe it or not, the answer to that question seems to be no. Here's the audio -- judge for yourself:



Either it's a bit or North Dakota really needs to start funneling some of that oil revenue into its school system.

She's joking. Her voice sounds too intelligent. She's some gal in community theater or the like.

@snurri I hear they're big fans of the Brontes and take in the occasional novel by Tolstoy too.

Thanks for posting. My 75 year old father in law in bemidji laughed his pants off.

However, I do think the original guy who wrote the letter was serious even though after he became national news he tried to play it off that he was joking the entire time.

I don't buy it. There was the the viral letter to the editor like 3 months ago that a guy wrote to his local newspaper about this very same subject and then just a short while later this woman calls a radio station with the same complaint.
