    A very common sight here. Just passing through without a care in the world. The puppy didn't even bother them. But then how threatening is a 3 lb. dog?

    Beautiful ! But you want to be extra careful with does with fawns, they are extremely protective, and are known to trample even collies, just to be safer.

    This video was taken last summer. This doe practically raised her twins in my yard. I know the pup wasn't there but this is how docile they are around here. Still NOT to be trusted though.

    Awesome video, Jeff! You have a really beautiful place. Looks like the deer were planning to snack in your garden.

    I know Jeff, they are very docile, but I had seen a video which circulating last year via email, here is a link



    The doe madly attacked a dog without provocation whereas it was the cat who looked suspicious and should have got the beating.
