Donna the “Deer Lady” Calls Fargo Radio Station to Please Move The Deer Crossing (Audio)

A radio caller identified as ‘Donna’ is getting waves of laughter from listeners of the audio clip during her call to Y94’s ‘The Morning Playhouse’ in North Dakota. Her frustration about deer crossing signs brought her to pick up the phone and voiced out her complains on the deejays of the morning radio show.

Donna said that over the past two years, she has been involved in three car accidents involving deer, just after she passed a deer crossing sign. With that in mind, she thinks that the deer crossing signs encourage deer to cross the streets and highways. Therefore, she wants those signs to be moved to avoid accidents.

“My frustration is that Minnesota and North Dakota departments of transportation would allow these deer crossings to be in such high-traffic areas. I mean I’ve even seen them on the interstate. Why are we encouraging deer to cross the interstate? I don’t get it,” Donna told the radio hosts.

The radio announcer answered Donna with a quiet laughter saying: “Are you kidding?”

Donna continued on her complaint saying that placing those deer signs on high traffic areas is an ‘irresponsible’ act. “It seems to me that it’s so irresponsible of us to allow these deer crossings to be in an area where these deer are so likely to be struck by oncoming traffic,” she said. “Wouldn’t you agree?”

The hosts clearly could not react immediately on her question, realizing how stupid that question is.

“The government can direct the deer population anywhere they want to. All they have to do is move that deer crossing sign,” Donna added.

The host answered back pointing on the misunderstanding of Donna. “You know deer crossings aren’t telling deer that it’s safe to cross there. Just more of an alert for drivers so they know it’s a high deer population,” the host said.

Still, Donna did not get the logic behind the deer crossing signs. She went on saying: “They can direct their deer population anywhere they want to by moving that deer crossing sign. Why in the world would they place it on the highway or the interstate, you know? I mean, god.”

To cut the argument, the host was heard saying “right” and promised Donna that they’ll help her spread about her deer issue.

The audio clip of Donna’s radio call entitled “Please Move The Deer Crossing” was uploaded on Youtube by a certain ‘tutufunny4u’ and currently has nearly 6 million views.

Due to the millions of views the audio clip generated on Youtube, Y94 radio station called Donna back and asked how she felt and what happened to her after her audio clip became a hit.

Donna admitted how stupid she was for not realizing that the deer signs were for us, humans. She also thanked the hosts for not laughing too much about her stupidity. “I mean honestly, in my defense, I had no clue these signs were for us [humans]. I never really thought about it enough to realize I was kind of being ridiculous,” she said.

Listen to Donna after realizing that deer can’t indeed read. LOL!
