What to do when a deer is hit

HITTING A DEER: I wonder what to do if my car should hit or be hit by a deer. Is there a telephone number I can call? I’d like the information to keep in my car at all times.
— Sal

ANSWER: Call 911 and the local authorities will write a report. The Division of Wildlife will be contacted if the animal was hit but not killed.
Another reader, Fred, asked if the person who hits a deer can keep it. The answer is yes, but you must go to the Division of Wildlife office for a roadkill permit.
