The deer ran across the road in the village of La Souste when it was struck last Friday evening.  The driver says there was nothing he could do to avoid it. He then saw a wolf running down the road.

It’s thought the same wolf was responsible for attacking a herd of goats the day before.

The driver called cantonal gamekeepers who shot the injured deer as it was too seriously hurt from the impact.
