It's a beautiful creature but I'm not sure what kind of deer it is.

It's the kind of deer you find in Pennsylvania. smiley - reindeer They're called 'white-tailed deer' because of their little white flags.

We had a yearling in our backyard the other night after dark. I called, 'Hi, Bambi,' and it ambled off to eat the neighbour's plants for a change. smiley - laugh

Yes, there is that about deer. Many people consult websites looking for names of plants that deer won't eat.

Deer have to eat, just as we all do. What are you going to do? There as a time when deer, in turn were eaten by larger predators, which we humans have tended to exterminate or chase away because the predators went after our sheep and chickens, etc.

So now the deer can eat whatever we haven't protected from them.

A friend from down the street just came by. She says she hasn't had too much luck with her tomatoes this year, what with the drought and the deer.

At least the local bear hasn't been in her yard.

Bears will sometimes feed on newborn deer.

But if humans put out easier things for the bears to eat, that's what they will go after.
