BLOOMFIELD TWP.—A 79-year-old motorcyclist was killed over the weekend in a Sunday crash with a deer.  It was about 9:50 last night when Venango County resident William Wheeling was riding his motorcycle on Route 8 in the Canadohta Lake area and a deer ran out into the road.  Wheeling could not avoid hitting the deer and was thrown from his bike.  Even though officials say he was wearing a helmet, he was pronounced dead on the scene.
