Oh Deer

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

This fawn wandered into our back yard yesterday and don't think for a moment that Baby (our rescue dog) didn't notice. So how did the little fawn react to a big dog barking at it?

She just kept grazing.

I guess when you are an urban deer you learn what is and is not a real threat and a dog secured behind a fence is not even worth a second look.

Good morning. The deer around our house don't get too fazed by the dog when he's inside the house!

The deer in our neighborhood love to eat our flowers and plants.

Now that's what I call a laid-back deer, Bob. I love deer, but don't like what they can do to a garden or yard!

Much of our planting revolves around the deer and squires Roy Kelley . That being said, since we got our dog (Baby) we have not seen any squirrels in our yard. We have a 7' deer fence around our vegetable garden. 😂

Understood Nina Hollander, Broker . As I mentioned to Roy Kelley our garden planting is always with the deer in mind. I was amazed at how laid back this deer was as well. Baby was no more than 75' away and barking up a storm. The deer just kept grazing and even kept getting closer.

Come to think of it Nina Hollander, Broker I have not seen any feral cats either. We still have bunnies under Tina's playhouse but Baby has no way to get to them.

We have a lot of deer along the American River Parkway, near my home.  I'm often surprised at how close they allow me to get.

Good morning Kat Palmiotti , I missed your reply yesterday.  Baby was in our fenced yard and the deer was in the neighbors. She doesn't bark in the house very often as there are no windows she can see out of.

It is amazing how much more astute animals are to warnings of any kind when compared to us humans who can not even see a freight train coming at times.  lol m

Yes, some of the (urban) deer her have little fear of people as they have spent their whole life here Myrl Jeffcoat and I imagine quite a few people feed them.

Isn't that a fact Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho . When I read "Man hit by train" I always shake my head and wonder how did that happen?
