In Carteret County, The Jacksonville Daily News reports that Tomasina, a turkey that became an official resident of the town of Davis, died after he was hit by a car.

    Along these lines, I wish that the state would suspend the game laws long enough to eradicate a lot more of these #!?*% deer we have. The regular hunting season alone hardly helps. How many more car / deer collisions do we have to tolerate before something is done?

    Are the owners of the wandering cow and horses responsible for damages to the vehicles? Yes, I care about the animals demise, but I think it's a good question. I know a wandering wild animal has no owner, so the crashee would use insurance to cover damages. I'm sure a big cow or horse would do some damage.
