"Well, I didn't actually shoot him . . ."

Today, as I was driving down SR 1 into Greendale, I saw a roadkill deer. Not an unusual sight this time of year. There's more possums and raccoons and deer and what-all on the highways around here than I've ever seen. But this deer was different. Its head was missing.

Now, I don't mean that whatever vehicle hit it tore its head off. The deer's body was intact, not mangled, its head and neck cleanly sliced off. Presumably, the deer was killed by collision -- but then, somebody stopped by the side of the road to cut off the head. What kind of a person would do this?

Whaddya think: Is it just me, or is that the cheesiest way to get a trophy you've ever heard of?
