Mythical Creatures

Apparently, there is a Pegasus in my vicinity. On my way to work this morning, I found myself staring at a Deer Crossing sign that had been converted to a Pegasus Crossing sign. The artist even took care to label it as "Pegasus", so as not to be confused with other winged ungulates in the area. While the sign above does not do justice to the original I saw this morning, it is a very similar sign. Apparently the artist had no clue that Pegasus is actually a winged horse rather than a winged deer. I must say that I do think Pegasus would look dashing with a set of antlers, almost regal in fact.

My main concern is that this sign was only about a half mile from where I live. If Pegasus is known to frequent the area, should I be watching for him out my sliding glass doors? Should I make preparations to profit off this unnatural stroke of good fortune? You know, Pegasus T-shirts, stickers, and other crap. Should I be concerned that Pegasus may be establishing a breeding colony and we will soon be overrun with winged terrors? Are mythical creatures considered endangered species? Would I go to prison for killing Pegasus if he started attacking me and my car? That one sign would suddenly make me fear such things and such a tiny stretch of road is an amazing testament to pictures being worth a thousand words (or in this case maybe 100).
