Deer killed on Centerville Road

JAMES CITY - A Gazette reader reported a large female deer dead on Centerville Road Wednesday.

The caller estimated the deer, a female, at about 200 pounds.

It was laying astride the multi-purpose path beside the road, adjacent to the entrance to Adam's Hunt subdivision.

Although the caller said the Virginia Department of Transportation had been notified and said the deer "wasn't their problem" because it wasn't in the roadway, a spokesman for the Williamsburg VDOT residency said the carcass was their responsibility and that a crew would be dispatched to remove it.
