Last week, a Michigan State Police trooper was driving through Roscommon County, near Houghton Lake, when he drove through a herd of deer. Not into - through. Didn't hit a one of them.

But he came close.

Here's the video - from WPTV-TV in Palm Beach. Because they know - their viewers may have moved away from Michigan to the southern sunshine, but their hearts are still up north - dodging whitetails on snowy roads.

We know - that was touching. Almost made myself cry on that one.
