Deer Attacks Family Dog
In yet another reminder that deer are not as docile as they seem, a family dog was attacked in Bend Oregon. According to KTVZ.com Tiffany Rounds' dog, Daisy, was attacked in her backyard by two does and a buck inflicting serious injury on Daisy.
Rounds said the area has a large deer population that roam in and out of yards, "fun to watch and see," until last Thursday, when the three deer attacked. She said she'd gone inside to grab her camera and take a photo "of the enormous buck, when my dog ran out the door, barking at the deer that were in her territory." Rounds said Monday the two does "immediately started beating her on with their hooves, and then the buck comes and tries to get her with his antlers -- this big ol' rack and this small dog."
A few months back this video was posted on YouTube that shows a doe, in Cranbrook British Columbia, showing her willingness to fight to protect her fawn. Presumably Daisy was stomped in a similar manner.
Deer attack videos wouldn't be complete without linking to this enterprising soul. Lynn Chestnut has a new novel perspective on oral cover scents.
