A First Time for Everything

Real Estate Agent with Russell Real Estate Services


I was showing a very rural property late yesterday afternoon.  I was in the kitchenRural property with the Mrs, while the Mr. was walking the perimeter of the 3 Acre property.  There happened to be several barns and outbuildings as well.

After a short while, Mr. came into the house and said, “Well, you’d better call the Sheriff”.  He explained that he found a badly injured deer caught in the fence behind one of the outbuildings.  It was in pretty bad shape.

I tried calling the Listing Agent, but got a voicemail.  I did not know how to reach the owner, so,.…I called the Sheriff. 

I called the SheriffWe didn’t have to wait long before he arrived.   Thankfully Mr. walked him out to where the deer was---out of my sight.  Then I heard the shots.  Just two, but still loud and echoing and sad.

I know it was for the best, but it still hurt my soul.  I finally reached the Listor and told him what had happened.   I didn’t want that poor homeowner to come home to discover the remains of the deer.My heart hurts


I hope it’s a long while before I am asked to call the Sheriff again.

Mary-I cannot imagine having that happen while showing property.  Unfortunately, the humane thing to do was put the deer down.  It's so sad.

Hi Kathy, so sad to have to make a call to have a deer destroyed.  Your buyer was very thoughtful towards that deer and to not ignore and have it suffer any longer.  I am sorry you had to go thru that.
