A couple of years ago, Governing ran a story (4th item) about some wayward deer. One had crossed the Golden Gate Bridge (taking up a car lane rather than using the suicide-prone pedestrian path). Another got hit by a plane -- carrying officials with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, no less -- after straying onto the runway at the Topeka airport.
