Activity type: i ran over a deer.

i ran over a (black-tailed) deer descending highway 84 in la honda. she came out of nowhere as i was taking a sweeping right hand turn and proceeded to jump around until she fell down right under my bike. yup. i ran her over.. two wheels off the road, and i must've cut her a little bit because there was blood on my bicycle. this is a 23c road bike. anyways, in the moments after running her over, i went into an out-of-control wobble and proceeded to somehow recover and continue down the mountain. we pulled over to check out my bike to be sure it was ok.. yup. perfect condition, and the annoying sound i was complaining about earlier in the ride was gone.
     the deer got up and lept away, and i was uncrashed and unscathed.
