Toronto cops taser Bambi

    Somehow a deer ends up in downtown Toronto by the bus terminal. A vet shoots it with a tranquilizer dart, the deer leaps over yellow police tape--that's jail time ---and so the cops taser it and throw a net over it. .


    The animal will be watched over by veterinarians and then likely given to the Toronto Zoo, police said. Still, no one knows where it came from.

    "Obviously, it made its way from Rouge Valley, Humber Valley," said Supt. Hugh Ferguson. "How? God only knows ... GO Train, maybe."

    At first I thought you meant Bambi Bambenek.

    I thought maybe a stripper from the CB got a bit testy.

    Fuck deer. They are overgrown rats with bushy tails.

    Unlike rats, however, they are damn tasty cooked in butter and garlic.

    I thought the Toronto cops were too busy parking illegally while running in to get lunch to worry abut tasering deer.

    The top cops are being total and utter hypocrites about this.

    People park in the bike lanes all the time in Toronto and the cops do absolutely nothing. There's a Scotiabank on the Lakeshore down by the condos and there are cars parked there all the time and neither the cops nor the parking police do a damn thing about it. But they're ready to slap you with a $30.00 ticket for an expired meter.

    How do you know rats aren't damn tasty cooked in butter and garlic?

    "Nutria" is the preferred nomenclature.

    In the South, some overzealous guy wearing head-to-toe camouflage quickly kills it and would want a photo with what's left of the animal in the Sunday sports section. Wish I were kidding ...

    Start with a dozen police constables. Add another dozen police from the Emergency Task Force in grey jumpsuits and bulletproof vests -- armed with dart guns, Tasers and a big sort of fishing net -- plus two vans from Animal Services and a senior veterinarian from the Toronto Zoo. Give them four hours: they will get the job done.

    I think they sent deer psychologists out after it was captured to make sure it wasn't suffering from postraumatic stress disorder.
