Chainsaw Does Not Deter Needy ElkEnjoy this astonishing video from a forest near Donji Miholjac, Croatia. Most animals would flee at the sound of a chainsaw, but this elk doe gets all up in the woodcutter's business. That's dangerous, but the elk wants his attention, and won't leave until she gets it. Marko Durmisi, who took the video, offers an explanation: he and his buddy with the chainsaw were out the day before and gave food to this doe. She's not going to forget a kindness, nor is she going to let a little thing like a chainsaw interfere with a potential food source.#elk #deer #Croatia #chainsaw
The Dog That Adopted a DeerLudovica the fawn was abandoned by her mother near a farm in Germany. The sisters who run the farm saved the baby deer by feeding her, but did not want her to become too dependent on humans. They kept her outside, although protected by a fence. It was Leo, their dog, who became Ludovica's comforter, protector, and teacher. When she was older, Ludovica was granted freedom to roam, and Leo taught her how to wander in the woods. Now, Ludovica spends most of her time in the woods, hanging out with other deer. But she is still Leo's best friend, and visits the farm whenever the urge strikes. Ludovica is a unique deer living in two worlds. We wish her well, and hope she is a better mother than her own was. You can follow Leo and Ludovica at Instagram.#fawn #dog #deer #interspeciesfriendship
Albino "Ghost Deer" Caught on CameraAbout one in 30,000 deer is born albino, and one man in Missouri just captured one of them on camera. Dale Richardson posted a video to Facebook showing his encounter with the all-white deer who was standing just a few feet from a road in Marshfield. He said that he’d spotted the deer wandering in the area on multiple occasions. Francis Skalicky, of the Missouri Department of Conservation, said that officials are aware of the existence of this particular albino deer, sometimes known as a "ghost deer”. He said that they’d been receiving reports about her several times already. “She has been around there for at least a few months.”#albino #deer #ghostdeer

Upon realizing that her mother’s condition is rapidly deteriorating, she and her sister come up with a plan to surprise her with her favorite thing : Bambi. Their mother loves the Disney deer so much she owns Bambi T-shirts, has Bambi statues, and considers deers the most beautiful animals.The sisters quickly got in touch with a mobile petting zoo near their home in Melbourne.

Tangled Deer Freed by Hunter with Angle GrinderDuring mating season, buck deer often fight each other, and sometimes their antlers get hopelessly tangled. This complication usually leads to the death of one or both deer. But in December, two tangled bucks were reported to Wisconsin landowners Troy Rebarchek and Tami Keenan. It was hunting season, and the couple could have just taken and tagged them, but Rebarchek thought that would be unethical. After all, they had no chance to escape on their own. When Rebarchek found the deer, they were not only tangled with each other, but also with a small tree. Rebarchek retrieved the only cutting tool he had in the truck, which was an angle grinder. He removed one antler from each buck, plus a few smaller pieces, until the two were freed. His wife recorded the rescue operation on video, which you can see at Facebook. If they were to fight each other again, they probably don't have enough antlers left to lock up. However, if you see a buck in the Wisconsin wood with lopsided antlers, give him a break- he's been through a lot.

The vehicle was pulled over in the area of Old Trail Road and Old York Road, Pennsylvania.

Upon a closer inspection of the car and its passengers, the police were shocked to notice a deer in the back of the car. According to the passengers, they hit the animal during their drive.

Christmas Lights and Deer Do Not Mix WellDespite what we've heard about Santa and his reindeer, regular deer do not need Christmas decorations. This deer was first spotted on November third in Okotoks, Alberta, with a string of Christmas lights tangled in his antlers. Several other reports came in about the same deer. He still carried those light on November 26 when Okotoks resident Bryce Lamont saw the deer and got some video footage. Alberta Fish and Wildlife officials are keeping an eye on the deer, but they don't want to tranquilize him unless it becomes absolutely necessary.
Rare Albino Deer Captured On Video By North Carolina ResidentIt is common for deer to hang out in Kelly Hammer's neighborhood near the Eno River in North Durham, North Carolina. But on this particular morning, Hammer saw something "absolutely beautiful" when she looked outside her home. Alongside a group of deer was a deer that was all white. Hammer immediately grabbed her iPhone (she didn't have a good camera beside her that time) and went outside to take some pictures of the unexpected sight. The other deer immediately ran away, but the albino deer "casually walked around for a few minutes."Hunting in North Carolina is a common recreational activity, but hunters believe that killing a white deer could lead to a "long run of bad luck" for the hunter.The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission note that albinism is a rare phenomenon. It only occurs in one in every 30,000 deer.Hammer submitted her footage over at CBS 17.(Image Credit: Kelly Hammer/CBS 17)#Deer #Albinism #albino #Rare
