I live in Hidden Valley Ranch, a great neighborhood in the south part of Prescott, Arizona. This neighborhood was developed by infilling a heavily forested homestead adjoining the Prescott National Forest. The Ponderosa Pines and native Oak trees were left in place and still provide forest cover.
Recently, a few of my neighbors and I have been watching a Buck Mule Deer that roams through our neighborhood. Yesterday, I managed to get his photo from my patio window.
Notice that the deer also has a lot of wire at the base of his antlers. I fear for the safety of this buck. He will be severely handicapped whenever the bucks start to spar with each other. Another buck could also get tangled in the wire and bind them together.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to rescue this beautiful Mule Deer?
Another point: If you discard trash, be aware that wild animals can interact. The results can be devastating to them.
A few years ago, birds were having disastous encounters with loose tab tops from soda cans. Action was taken by the manufacturers to redesign soda cans. Now the tabs do not separate from the cans
