Yep sure did. Looks like a bunch of folks on the same page and giving examples of just how bad it can get. From what I can see just about everybody is agreeing with you

you know what .... you get back what you put out. These people have bee putting out peace, love, calm, food at times, soft calm touch .... these animals have responded to these quiet, beautiful actions. Deer are some of the most skittish animals I've ever seen ... feeding in my front yard. We tiptoe and whisper inside the house behind double pane windows and their heads shoot up and they stare at us through the window. It's amazing. SO to see this many deer sharing with this family is a really beautiful thing. I do believe it may make them easier to shoot during hunting season ... hopefully not.

Me? A hippie? NEVER. A liberal, socialist? NO. I am a staunch republican but do have a special connection with many animals. It doesn't have to end badly ... it 'MIGHT' ... but so might crossing the street at the wrong time. Just saying ...

Nicely put.

I have put up with Alaska winters for 6 years now just to have the opportunity to see and photograph all the wildlife in the spring, summer and fall.

Definitely not a hippie, I am so conservative I make make the extreme right wing look like liberals.

Two points:

1) Look both ways before crossing the street and it will lessen the chance of ending badly.

2) Don't approach and pet the deer or feed them by hand and it will lessen the chance of ending badly.

U tube "deer stomping dog" on u tube and see what the end result of befriending a wild animal is. Deer have similiarly attacked people as well. Pretty simple solution - Don't feed the animal.

I'll make it a bit easier,


Barney recovering from his 2nd encounter with a doe, blindsided walking from the barn to the house. Cell phone pic, poor quality but you get the idea.


Sadie, blindsided by a doe running to greet us on return from a trip.


Last year a 10 year old yellow Lab was killed by a buck in town (Durango) and a Dachshund had the skin ripped off of his side and had to be put down over in Forest Lakes.

Cute forest creatures my (((
