When I went to let the cat out, he hesitated a moment, and that's when my eye caught movement going past our back deck. Upon closer inspection, I still couldn't figure out what it was. All I could see was a very large animal with brown fur. My brain went immediately to wolf. I almost grabbed my cat and slammed the door shut before we became food. Once I came to my senses, I realized it was too tall to be a wolf and was probably a deer. I decided to sneak a peek over the railing. To my surprise, it was not the usual does and fawns that we see, but a full grown buck! After grabbing my camera and running through six inches of snow in my surfer socks, I spotted him in my neighbor's yard. That's when I saw the other two that were with him. Definitely a good sunday in my city!
|He seemed to be having trouble walking.|
Not sure if he was injured or just on slippery ground.
