Last weekend I swerved to miss momma deer and took out bambi. Luckily she was only about the size of a german shepherd and I was hard on the brakes at the point of impact, think the extra weight on the front tire helped the bike stay upright, didnt go down and killed the little thing. You would think for animals that are prey, they would have a better sense of angles and closure rates that would help them avoid danger, like a dog does when he is "hunting" us as we ride by.
Any way, glad you are okay, and I agree, get your knoggin checked if any pains at all in it. Better safe than sorry.
