Is there any case law where a deer was struck and killed by a car?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Freidooni v. Freidooni, 2010 BCSC 553 (CanLII):

In White v. Webster, Esson J.A. says that the question comes down to this. He says it was a virtually unavoidable inference that there was some absence of look out on the part of the driver. I am of the same opinion in this case. The defendant was not paying attention. He did not see the deer when he should have seen it. He took no evasive action to avoid the impact when he should have been able to do that.
