Deer in the alley

A couple of teenage deer strolled down our alley looking for food on a snowy afternoon last week.

A small herd of deer like to hike up and down our alley.

I snapped this picture last week after a snowfall. These two teenagers strolled across the front yard looking for food while I worked on my truck in the garage driveway. They munched on an evergreen bush and tossed occasional sideways glances at me.

I tried to get closer but they became wary and strolled to the other side of a nearby house.

A short time later a neighbor walked down the alley. He was pushing his two children in a three-wheel baby carriage.

“Beware of the deer,” I told him.

He laughed.

“Yes, we see them all the time,” he said. “They like to come around early on garbage day.”

I guess Duluth deer are just raccoons with long legs and hooves.

  1. Nick, thanks for sharing the photo and interesting tidbit about the deer. Friendly and hungry I guess. Quite the closeup.
