I saw that image a few weeks ago, and it definitely resembles a Deer hit. I have had the exact same thing happen to a vehicle of mine, except for the
fact that the individual driving it at the time was stopped at a Red Light.
A Huge Buck came flying over a berm during the Fall Season a few years ago, and the driver felt the entire car rock extremely hard to one side. They
looked over, and there was a White-Tailed Buck, he had leapt clear over the berm, and by the time he saw the car he was already on a collision course.
His head rammed into the Right Rear Passenger Door, and when he scrambled to gain traction (In order to Right Himself), his Rear-End clobbered a Huge
Dent into the Right Front Passenger Door, and he knocked the Right Side-view Mirror down into a Hanging Position (The exact same manner as the Vehicle
in question here).
Soon thereafter the Driver witnessed the Deer stumbling off in a Dizzy Daze, and one of their Co-workers who was a few cars back later mentioned that
they had in fact witnessed the entire incident as well.
As for the Damage, the entire Right Side of the Vehicle was crumpled in (Both Doors), and the Right Side-view Mirror was shattered and dangling by its
wires. There was NO Blood, NO Fur, and Not even a SINGLE Scrape on the Paint (At least not a Scrape that went through any level of Basecoat). As for
the Deer, I do believe that he in fact survived with a slight Headache.
So there you go, if I had never witnessed the Damage myself, nor Heard the story Firsthand, I would have NEVER imagined that a Deer could take on a
1.5 Ton Car (An Old School VOLVO at that! [They are Built like absolute Tanks] ), and live to tell about it.
White-tailed Deer are EXTREMELY Strong, and Swift. Just remember that when you decide to ever underestimate the Neck and Head strength of an Animal
that most likely is No Taller than yourself. They can easily Kill you with a Head Butt, and at the Very least Crack a Few Ribs.
Bottom line, if the Driver of the Vehicle in Question were to swipe a Deer at 40 MPH, or have the Deer run into Her from the Side as she Passed, in
the manner which she so describes, then it is Highly Probable to NEVER find Blood, Fur, A Body, or any likewise evidence at the scene.
