We've had plenty of snow in recent weeks, but it melts quickly. This has brought deer down from the mountains, many of which find their way into residential neighborhoods looking for food.
Just before lunch, several females and a few babies showed up in the back yard. Click on the images below to their view larger sizes in a new window:
They are such beautiful creatures. I cannot imagine hunting and killing them; the sport repulses me. I understand nature must take its course no matter how unpleasant it is, but deer are such exquisite animals. It is cruel to slaughter them just for sport.
We are not living in the old west, so killing them for food as survival is a ridiculous notion.
