I have a cemetery nearby that is connected to a huge greenbelt.  Because there are so many holes in the fence due to erosion, the deer have access.  Lucky me.  At times, you can get some wonderful pictures of them.

 

The sad thing is, there are a couple of loons in the area who have made them too used to people by feeding them. I actually saw one nutcase petting a WILD DEER! He is used to her because she always feeds him.

 

Anyway, I digress.  I am just saying, these deer are not that afraid.  They keep a safe distance but it is not hard to walk up pretty close. You just have to be slow and look away occasionally while they forage.

Very nice images, Art.

 

As for your second paragraph, are they nuts?  A couple of years ago, one small town (Creston) in southeast British Columbia, had a problem with aggressive deer right in the middle of town.  I never heard how they took care of the problem, but there were several reports of deer charging people and small pets.  There is a reason why they are described as "wild".  <_<

Thanks, Everyone.

 

Mark, 

In Toronto, they will shoot them dead.  Nice price to pay for idiots who don't get it.  The innocent "wild animals" pay for human stupidity.  Not much you can do, the City has come out to talk to them.  They don't care. I have seen them both, one looks a little "troubled", the other is just a privileged idiot in a BMW SUV.  Jason knows them way better than I do, he has run into them a number of times.  There is no talking to them.

Unfortunately, you're right.  :angry:
