Hello Deer

I dearly hope that those of you in the pertinent parts of America appreciate how wonderfully awesome it is that you have baby deer sleeping in your backyards.

Now, please excuse me while I go find a wombat...

  1. Sure, baby deer may be adorable, but I've never even SEEN a Wombat! Not even in a zoo!

    ...we're deprived, I tell you.

  2. The campus I went to uni at had more deer than students. Thousands of 'em! It was awesome, especially during fawning season.

  3. Deer are pretty cute, when they're not in the garbage or eating your plants in your garden.

    Or jumping in front of your car on the highway. Deer > Car.

  4. I love it's facial expression and coloring.

    I think having a wombat in the backyard would be cool...

  5. An friend told me she had a kangaroo in her backyard when she was a child. She had to run for her life every day so it wouldn't attack her

  6. Both Kangaroos and Wombats can be surprisingly vicious. Don't get between a hungry kangaroo and food, or you'll get a good kicking...

  8. Deer would be cute if they weren't overpopulating this little town I live in. There's another deer hit by a car every day ]= It's very sad. Maybe, instead of hiring snipers to get rid of them, we could send them to Australia? =D

  9. Yesterday I was all "oh look at that cute baby deer dead at the side of the road!"
    Ah yeah, about having deer live by you, you see a lot of dead ones. Last year, the snow was so bad that when it melted people were finding dead deer underneath. It's cool when they're alive...except when they're eating your flowers, and walking in front of you making you late for the bus, and running in front of your car so that you have to slam on the breaks...
    I had a teacher once that died that way.
    I think I'd prefer a wombat. You should draw one of those.

  10. I feel so ashamed, I had to google Wombat to find out what one even was. I live in the city (America). I'm deprived, all I get are pigeons and Possums.
    But the wombats are cute, they look like teddy bears.

  11. Looking at the fawns is wonderful, but when they get older and eat all our flowers, and then our bushes during the winter, they're a pain. I wish they weren't so overpopulated so we could appreciate them more.

  12. My husband and I were wandering around a residential area of our new town, and were suitably awed by a deer coming out of the woods--until it squatted on someone's front lawn.

    That kind of ruined the aww-making and brought about the realistic "such is life" reflections

  13. lol I live in the city in TX so not many dear here but I go to school in the country in NY and there are a TON of dear there! I've heard all the evil bad things dear do to lawns and gardens but since I have no lawn or garden at school they're just cute :3. I have a friend who has a pet dear, it's against the law but no one's told on them yet...shh!

  15. I have deer in my backyard often and im glad they dont kick.... but then, theres the cyotes :(

  16. Oh, but the deer DO kick, and pretty viciously. And bite if they feel they have to.

    Much of the US is overrun by deer due to the removal of natural predators, large and small (the screw worm eradication programs on cattle resulted in lots of parasiticides in the deer's natural habitat, resulting in higher deer populations). I think of them as Emergency Rations in the event that the peak oll folks are right (and I'm a pacifistic vegetarian).

    I don't care if they eat the flowers and bushes, but when they go after my food garden and fruit trees I get mad.
