Deer in town

My father lives in a town with a population of just over 43,000, and his house is within walking distance of the downtown area, yet deer can frequently be seen in his neighborhood. I captured this doe this past weekend, grazing directly behind the house very near where my car was parked.

    We have deer (whole families of them) wandering around our backyard (and eating the leaves off of our trees and destroying our plants and shrubs) almost every day.

    1. I have them, too, but I live in the woods. I grew up in the house my dad lives in, and we never had deer in town back then.

        I live about 2 miles from the center of town, but there are deer all over the place. And coyotes and bobcats and wild turkeys and wild pigs and foxes and ….

      2. Yes, I have all of those where I live, too, plus bears and even once a mountain lion. And now we have armadillos! Makes life interesting!

        I haven’t seen any bears or armadillos around my place. Not yet, anyway. There have been a few reported mountain lion sightings, though.

    Not a bad-looking neighbour at all!

    1. When I was growing up in that house we never saw deer in town. Interesting…

        Perhaps in those times they were more likely to appear on the menu than in the back yard?
