From our local newspaper: . . - - - - - . . - -. . . Posted November 05,2007 MANSON -A cow fell about 200 feet off a cliff Sunday and landed on the hood of a minivan passing by Rocky Point about one mile east of Manson, officials said. - - .. - Charles Everson, Jr. and his wife Linda escaped injury. "It was just 'bam- you just saw something come down and hit the hood," Charles Everson said this morning from his hotel room in Manson. He and his wife are in the area fiom Westland, Mich., near Detroit, to celebrate their one-year anniverw, he said. They were on Highway 150 headed back to their hotel after attending a church service. Everson, 49, said he didn't actually see the animal until it hit - and didn't realize what had happened until after the impact. "I'm like, 'I don't believe this. I don't believe this. I don't believe this,' " Everson said, adding he repeated the phrase "about 20 times." The incident happened about 12:20 p.m. Arnold Baker, Chelan County Fi District 5 chief, said the cow was a heifer he estimated to weigh about 600 pounds. "It's funny because it was such a close call," Baker said. "Inches different and the couple in this car would have been killed." The cow, about year old, belonged to a breeder in the area who had earlier reported the animal missing, Baker said. The animal was euthanized at the scene. The Eversons continued on about a mile after the collision before pulling over, and were taken to Lake Chelan Community Hospital as a precaution. The van suffered heavy damage, including a broken windshield from the force of the animal hitting the hood, Baker said.

Ok Deb, I re-thought it. Nope, can't do a minvan! I can't over come the reputation of the MAV (Mormon Assault Vehicle).

Re: justKathi write: OMG! How horrible and wonderful at the same time. Thank God the people were not injured--there but for the grace of God, things would have been different. Five years ago I purchased a Mercedes, and I couldn't wait for a road trip. The car was delivered Tuesday night Wednesday it had tags and insurance and Friday a girl friend and I hopped in for a 150 drive to an out-of-state casino. Driving home she acted as my lookout as the area was very rural and heavily populated with deer. We were cruising along with me ever so carefully listening for her "deer" signal. All at once she's screaming, "DEER, DEER, DEER," I see it I said when "BAM" there was a deer in my radiator! I had seen the deer on my side of the road, but not the one on her side. He turned and jumped at the wrong second and I nailed him. My car looked "okay" so I continued for about a mile when it too died. It was totaled and we remained stranded in the middle of the night until daylight 4 hours later. I shed a tear for my new car until I realized it had saved my life. Had I been driving the Lincoln the deer would have come through the windshield instead of the heavy front grille of the Benz. We would have been killed almost instantly.

You have described the area I live in and this time of year, the deer are everywhere. It doesn't help that mankind insist of building roads across migration trails.
