I hit a deer today while driving a company vehicle. The impact of the collision did not kill the deer, but did immobilize it with a couple of broken legs (to go with whatever other internal injuries/broken bones I could not identify). I had to sit there for an hour and a half while waiting for the Department of Wildlife to arrive and euthanize him. He struggled to move around but finally rested where he could look directly at me while we waited.

It's such an empty feeling to look into the eyes of an animal whose helpless suffering is due to your own actions. It was the longest hour and a half I can remember and I still feel terrible.
