A Vue? He's lucky to have walked away.

The traffic report on the news this morning talked about delays due to a vehicle/elk collision in Maple Valley.

It can't possibly be with all the poaching conspiracies!!

The car that was hit was a Saturn Vue.  This guy just stopped to help.  I was told the meat was taken to the food bank.  No poaching or anything suspect.  Prayers to the injured driver.

Was hit on 169 right passed Foley's produce stand heading towards Renton.

He's at least injured. Not sure he did walk away.

 :yeah: if the HW investigators already gave their findings then it's as such. No other common sense, facts or evidence can change otherwise.

Still don't get it unless Saturn hits it, severs jugular , Dodge gets sprayed by it and elk then falls down next to truck?  Weird.
Either way, hope it wasn't one of the big uns that hangs around by us. That'd be a shame....

Crazier hits have happened. Buddy totaled a new F 250 4x4 with a white tail doe back in WI a while back. Seems impossible until you hear the story. He was following behind a little car at highway speeds. Car tags the deer and boots it up in the air like a field goal kick. Deer comes falling out of the sky and lands on his windshield/roof. Was enough damage to the top of the cab to total the truck.

I'm thinking about getting a brush guard with machete mounts for situations like this..... lots of blood... still a road kill, but what's with all the blood on the truck??

But I thought a Saturn Vue hit it?  :dunno: I'm not jumping to the conclusion of accusing somebody of poaching, and I really hope all involved are ok, but all the stories and this picture are sure weird.

The elk was salvaged by my cousin not taken to the food bank, it was loaded into his pickup by a self loader log truck! I'll try and get a better picture of it later because that picture does the bull no justice.

The white truck in the picture is actually sitting for sale along the side of the road, after the bull was hit it made it to the truck and was leaning against it thus the blood on the quarter panel. WSP dispatched it

I drove by the bull was still alive with it's head up bedded in front of the truck. I was hoping one of his smaller buddies got hit and he was just there for emotional support. Bummer

Great salvage, I would take the rack to a taxi, have him do it up, sell it and pay for my hunt next year.

I believe he said it would frequent their property often.  I believe this is a more recent photo of the bull that he posted.  I chatted with the guy for a little bit and I was saying how it was sad that this bull ended up getting hit but I hoped he got to spread those genes around and he said there is definitely one of this bulls offspring that has the same caliber of headgear roaming the area as well so thats good to here but hopefully he doesn't meet the same fate.
