This is Yale Cohen’s picture. He says "On June 4 I came a cross two deer that were caught between the fences between the Riverton Bridge and McKeesport.. unable to get out....banging against the fence like pin balls...there was a biker on the Riverton side and I and my companion on the McKeesport side ...they felt trapped and bounced madly against the sides trying get relief...it was a bit frightening we trapped as well and feared the deer would hit us as they flailed around...I eventually got around them and they went towards McKeesport..."
to enlarge the picture (this works in Chrome, anyway), on Mac hold down control key, click picture with mouse, select Open Image in New Tab. On Windows it's probably right-click.
On Win 7 / Chrome, you can also Control +
(and Control - to shrink it again)
This has happened to me with deer and rabbits on the Sandcastle leg of the trail too. Design flaw.
Never thought we were building animal traps but ?
Late one night, there was a rabbit on the sidewalk ramp on the south side of the Fort Pitt Bridge.
I tried to figure out a way to get the rabbit down where he was, but he ended up going to town - terrified, some yards in front of me.
I guess Point State Park might be a OK place for bunny.
