Mommy Deer Can Be Lethal

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

This video starts out bucolic, in a peaceful residential neighborhood in Cranbrook, B.C., Canada.

But you are forewarned: It will get nasty. Very nasty.

That dog should have been on a leash. The person who took and uploaded this video onto YouTube wrote that the dog, Star, got away after 23 seconds — which oddly enough, was not included in the video.

Why is that?

And why did the person continue videotaping, instead of try to stop the attack by throwing a stick or a stone at the deer?

Star was hurt but did recover.

When I see a mother deer with fawn on my walk, I give them a very wide berth.

I only wish human mothers are as fiercely protective of their babies as this doe. Alas, human mothers not only abort their fawn, they get the Supreme Court to gloss murder as “the right of privacy.”
