Hey CD, seen WVU have another bad go at it while on another channel a NASCAR race at Daytona gone out of control, no one killed with that debris spreading was amazing.
I am gonna be out probably the rest of the day, have a good day all.
I hope you enjoy your day, Weepy. Yes, WVU walked away with another L. Didn't get to view the accident, but I've heard a lot of stories about what happened.

Actually, that's not entirely a true statement......and at the rescue place they take in orphaned fawns all the time and put them in with a herd and have no issues.......even a mommy dog who has just had puppies, will take in an orphaned kitten or other baby......there are shows all the time that prove this!!!
Right. I know that dogs and cats take in other animals, but I just wasn't sure about deer. Some animals will and some won't. Even within certain species, some mothers will take in orphans and others won't. I guess that is similar to humans.

I think I read somewhere where it is rare that a doe will take in another's fawn if it wants to nurse. Don't quote me on that, but it seems like I read it somewhere.
We had a guy in our community that kept several deer in a pen. They were always cute when they were little, but they get right down nasty when they grow up--especially the male deer. My son always wanted to go over there to see the deer when he was little. We showed up one time when the guy was butchering one of the male deer. That was kind of traumatic for my son, but that was a fact of life, so he finally got over it.
He kills the deer he raises in a pen? Doesn't seem fair at least the wild ones have a chance. Maybe that's why the adult dear turned nasty? They knew the guy was going to kill them.

Couldn't fawns drink formula? You know the kind they give to orphaned livestock? Sorry,city girl here.

Morning Emma. Hope you are doing well this morning.
Howdy Sundog. Been reading your planting adventures. I have a neighbor that is using things that makes noise around their garden. I've not asked if it works, but I've noticed a lot of strings with bells attached and tin pans along with plastic bags tied to limbs and string around a piece of land that used to look like a garden.

Good afternoon, NorCal Native. It is strange how some animals will take in other animals.

I've seen people use aluminum pie tins tied to the fence as noise makers. I think at first those things work, but deer are pretty smart and eventually they get used to the sound and ignore it. They're pretty crafty animals that seem to be up on most of our tricks....LOL.

I place motion sensitive toys near the window in the bird room because they would chew the framing if they began sitting in it. They eventually figure out the toy will not hurt them and I have to get a new one. Currently,Maddy's Furbie is standing guard.

Yep, sometimes I wish people would take a lesson or two from the animal kingdom.

yes; Goat or lamb formula works well. Around the middle of May is the 1st hay-cutting and several fawns are orphaned and raised by ppl. We ran over a fawn several yrs ago while mowing and its twin wasnt hurt but the mother wouldn't return to the other.My cousin raised it ,then in the fall it returned with other deer. I picked on him hard about butchering the little fawn ,telling him once you skin them you can't see the spots. I was just picking though I couldnt have killed it.

I would agree......but humans could take some lessons from the animal kingdom in certain situations!!!

I agree, but I did run over a cat once that was flopping all over the road. It had been hit and it was obvious there was no way it was going to recover. I couldn't just drive away thinking it was suffering.

Yeah, he had a permit from the state to raise deer. Not at all sure how that worked, but I remember when I lived in NJ, you could buy farm-raised venison in a restaurant in New Brunswick. So I guess they consider it like livestock or something.
