This is the view from Ms. CCCat's home in San Marcos. Texas. Her home here has COWS in the front yard! This is the view through the front door! I'm such a city girl! Between the deer and the scorpion, I practically had a full camera!

I bet they don't like them as much as you did!

They're picturesque, but I bet Vicki W.'s right. If you have to live around them, they're not so cute. Deer are unfortunately multiplying faster than natural systems can control them, and now people are anti-hunting so the numbers removed by hunters are low. We have a real deer problem in many areas of the country. Where I'm from in Kentucky, people can't grow gardens due to deer predation on their crops. It's hard to fence a garden high enough to keep out deer. Heck, they eat the flowers out of the planters on your porch. In the winter, my mom finds deer tracks in the snow on cold mornings where they clustered around the outside furnace unit in the night to keep warm. She's not in the country, by any means. I don't know what the solution is, but it's bad for everyone, even the deer, who overload their territory and starve.
