Seen here looking like an animal that's had its head shot off and reattached one too many times, the robotic deer Florida police use to catch out-of-season hunters gazes sadly at the camera. "I'd rather be a wall mount," I imagine it saying. Obviously it's never seen itself in a mirror. The story of some idiot who shot at the thing out-of-season from his truck:
The Florida man had apparently seen the deer on the side of the road (placed there by the police) and shot it with his rifle. That's illegal because deer season is currently closed and because you can't shoot a deer from a roadway. According to the Miami Herald and Outside Magazine, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission have been using robotic deers like this to catch hunters for a while now. They place it on the side of the road, control its movements and have officers pop out of nowhere after the shot is fired.
Out-of-season drive-by deer shootings -- Florida, ladies and gentlemen! No thinking, just doing. It's like America's penis, just out there dangling in the ocean. Sometimes I pray at night a shark will come bite it clean off.
Thanks to Ian, who made a robotic Bigfoot to see how many people would just shoot and kill the poor bastard instead of trying to communicate with him.
