mlizzy, if you lived on a farm like myself, you wouldnt find deer endearing. Several deer could destroy a years worth of crops OVERNIGHT. These kind of stories are heart warming, but you have to consider what a deer really is...a threat to a farmers livelihood.
My brother-in-law is a farmer, and he'd be telling me the same thing I bet. Maybe about rabbits, not dear though. We're in the suburbs. It's too bad they're so destructive ...

They are seriously destructive and the worst part is the herds are so thick due to lack of predation and hunting interest, the deer are starting to develop wasting disease.
We have a Cougar in my neighborhood that has been pulling down Doe’s left and right. My rancher neighbor found a very large Buck the Cougar killed last week that has people kinda spooked. As many deer as there are here for the big cat to feast upon, I don’t think we have much to fear...especially since just about everyone out here knows what to do if a Cougar is “sighted.”
