Do you have to file an SR-1 to California DMV if you hit a deer?

Deer jumped in front of me while driving on California road, and I hit it. Law seems very vague here. Says you must report any traffic accidents with property damage in excess of $750 or if a person was injured or killed, by filing an SR-1. No one was injured but property damage to car is over $750. On the form it asks for the other party's information, what do I put for the name "Rudolph"? California law doesn't even seem to define what an "accident" is... before you think this should be simple, think about it. I usually think of a traffic accident as being between two vehicles/drivers. Here is a link to the California DMV on reporting accidents, you can find the SR-1 form here as well: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/brochures/fast_facts/ffdl16.htm So my question is, do I need to file an SR-1 in California if I hit a deer while driving on a public road? Anyone with personal experience on this? Thank you.

We hit a deer in upstate NY. We called 911 and the police came and did not file a case against. It was a rental car though and the insurance took care of everything.
