Mom & triplets

Postby nanny_56 » Aug 13, 2007 3:05 pm

I have seen these guys a couple times on my walks around my block. A couple of saturdays ago the fawns ventured over in our yard, which really stressed mom out!! After several minutes, she was able to get all 3 following her to get them out of there. She had seen me through the window!!

How :cool:

I had a freind once that feed them (No, they didn't hunt as some do off their porch! :eek: ). She ended up with one coming through the patio door when she didn't remember to fill the trough! :o

Two years ago a large buck somehow managed to make his way through two quiet subdivisions here and then entered a huge Episcopal church by breaking a window. The poor deer ran up into the balcony and then fell to the sanctuary floor, suffering massive injuries, and had to be euthanized.

The church is at least 10-15 miles from anything even remotely like what you'd call a wooded area but somehow the deer traveled that distance, crossing several really busy streets on top of everything else.

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.

That is so neat! I loved watching our female and her tripletts all this past winter. I hope to see them again with their young this fall. It is wonderful to watch Mom keep an eye on the young as they venture out :D
