FRANKLIN, Pa. — A man’s body was apparently mistaken for a dead deer along a state highway, police said.
The body was lying along the road for as long as three days, authorities said. He was wearing tan clothing, which apparently led passing motorists to assume it was a dead deer, Venango County Coroner John Greggs said.
A Pinegrove Township employee reported the body yesterday after noticing the man’s shoes, Mr. Greggs said.
I don’t know about you, but I’d like to think that I could tell the difference between a dead deer and a dead human. Unless this was a giant human, with tiny tiny feet … whose arms were the same length as his legs.
So the moral of the story is this: If you are going to get hit by a car and die on the side of the highway and would like anyone to notice that you got hit by a car and died on the side of the highway, make sure you very clearly look human.
