Loch Ness is the home of Nessie, the elusive water creature that scientists around the world continue to search for irrefutable proof of its existence. The Northwestern United States is home to the infamous Big Foot that modern science can not prove exists, but not from lack of trying. Roswell, New Mexico is the site of the unfortunate crashed extraterrestrials whose existence is vehemently denied by the United States Air Force to this day. In Kansas, we have the fabled mountain lions secretly released at sites all over the state by that bastion of espionage, the Kansas Fish and Game Department.
Few people know it but Kansas also harbors another monster. Recently, in the early morning hours I spotted the most feared Kansas creature: a white tail deer. I captured this creature's existence on film. This vile animal is hated, hunted, poached and constantly attacked with speeding vehicles. Just a few months ago, the Kansas City police snipers and their crack swat team shooters killed hundreds of these dangerous creatures. The claim was the deer had been terrorizing the good citizens, tourists, and homeless people in a park of that grand city.
Deer that adapt to city life are apparently vampires, which is why the city fathers approved them as living sniper targets. With over 700 vampire deer slated for death, it was invaluable practice for those mighty gunslingers whose real job is to shoot and kill human beings. It was a win-win situation.
I can tell by the glowing eyes of this fearsome beast that it is a vampire deer. It must have escaped the Kansas City slaughter.
