Deer Crossing or Waiting for the Next Train Out of State?

Maine is struggling to revive a deer herd. One of many problems is that of overgrown populations of large predators, i.e. coyotes/wolves, bear, bobcat, lynx, etc. When I first saw this photo, sent to me by Gary Inman, I thought it funny for obvious reasons, but then I wondered if perhaps this deer was waiting for the next train in order to get out of state to a place she won’t be constantly tormented by large predators.
