  1. I found the deer while I was walking on Hillcrest. There were no witnesses and its eyes were glazing over. The Humane Society aid took more than an hour to arrive. I decided to wait for them, and a high school boy visiting his grandma stayed with me. We had a nice talk and discovered we both are hunters. It seemed a little ironic that hunters would provide overwatch for a dead deer they might have taken in the wild, to make sure the right thing was done.
