It's Better Than Bambi!
But outside of the perceived problems that they see up there, deer are a good community medicine. While ones are eating, others are keeping a sharp ear out for intruders and threats. The children are kept close by and made sure they're safe. And while they have to look of soft and gentle and demure, they'll tromp a person into the ground if you're that close of a threat. Is it common, well, no...but it is in their personality.
The deer here, are tiny marsh deer. They're not as skiddish, and a little more curious, but about the size of large dogs. Instead of running into the cars, they'll usually stand at the side of the road and just kind of watch you go by.
