I am in receipt of a valuable contribution in honor of St. Venison’s Day. Weatherman Bruce Laidlaw writes:
You seemed skeptical about my report of a deer herd within Ann Arbor. Considering your recent experience with a suicidal deer, I thought I would give you some evidence of the herd.
Yesterday morning, I let the Tiger out on his back yard tether. Then both I and Tiger noticed a doe in the corner of the back yard. Instead of running for cover, Tiger decided he needed a closer look.
Miss Doe did some stomping, but Tiger kept on coming.
Then Mr. Buck came to the rescue. Since Tiger was not impressed with Mr. Buck’s 8 point rack, I decided to intervene. I went out with my iPhone recording the scene. Here’s a link to the video. And here are some stills I captured from the video.
Thank you for painting the fence today, Bruce. You can’t tell me the world isn’t an astonishing place. Next: Rob the Firefighter and the Foxes of Lafayette Park – yes, the one in Detroit.
