Deer were one of Nature’s lst beauties in mY CHILDHOOD> so few are left where we used to see them1 thanks for sharing
Anyone who has ever set foot on Pender Island can’t help but notice the deer. Deer are everywhere. Around every corner on every road. Eating up every garden. Leaving deer “evidence” all over your lawn. The deer thrive as the island has no predators. The deer are smaller than the ones we see at home in Alberta, and a lot less skittish. Often when you drive past them they just look up dumbly as if jumping into the path of a moving vehicle would take too much effort. As we drive the roads on the island, hitting a top speed of 50 km/h, we are constantly on the lookout for deer. The average driving conversation goes something like this: “Blah blah blah deer blah blah deer blah blah blah deer…..” You get the picture. Deer are everywhere.
