Deer Aren’t Pets

What happens when suburbanites lose touch with any meaningful understanding of deer
and deer behavior? In northern Florida, at least, they’re taking them home as pets.

But there’s one problem: While these semi-tame surburban deer might look cute and
approachable while young, eventually they grow up. And a deer’s antlers and hooves
can quickly become dangerous weapons which can inflict serious harm to anyone getting
in the deer’s way. Factor in a buck’s “moody” disposition as his juices start flowing
ramping up to the rut, and many are finding out the hard way that white-tailed
deer are meant to be man’s best game animal — not his best friend.
