I might sound like a loon...but I'm really sad the neighborhood deer that we, as well as our two neighbors, have been feeding for the past month, died this week. She was in rough shape. Our neighbor thinks she was hit by a car last month and never recovered from her injuries. It was so cute the way she curled up under our pine trees and the baby deer looked over her. Our neighbor found her in her yard this week. She called the Department of Environmental Management who picked her up so other animals wouldn't get to her. She also said the baby was running around behind our houses :(
Here's one more shot of our little neighborhood pet. She did a number on the bush on the side of our shed...but we'll get over it...here's the Mama resting and her baby looking on
We could tell she was getting worse...this was Mama deer on Sunday morning. She stayed there for about 7 hours all throughout the day.
