Another animal in our schools

  At least there was no classes in session in this one.  A panicked buck crashing into a class full of 7th graders could have been messy.  Maybe I should write my congress critters and tell them we need to establish deer free zones for our schools.  If it saves just one life...I'll be amazed.  Just goes to show how easy it can be to get into a building if you ignore the polite conventions.

  They missed out on a golden opportunity to educate the kids though.  The p.e. department could have harvested the deer with their archery supplies. (Do schools still have archery classes? Mine did, favorite part of gym every year).  The biology teacher could have done the field dressing and dissection.  (Way easier to see all the fiddly bits than on a frog).  The home ec department could have shown the kids some basic food processing, and the chemistry department could have tanned the hide.
