It seems that ODNR should be responsible for damages, since they claim the wild animals belong to them.
If I had a hog,horse or cow get hit on the road,I would be resopnsible for damages.

Hogs, Horses or Cows are not native to this area. They were brought in a long long time ago. What is it, dumba$$ Monday, where everyone posts the most asinine stuff?

Coincidence, but kind of freaky that both deer-vehicle crashes on Butler Rd. occured at 8:24am & 8:24pm exactly 12 hours apart
