Oh Deer

by William Skink

The deer made absolutely no effort to move from the path of my motorized vehicle. It just stood there in the middle of the street, staring. I finally had to lay on the horn to get the dumb animal to mobilize its meat sticks to the sidewalk.

I rolled up to the cul-de-sac where my parents live as the deer ambled on to their relatively new neighbor’s yard, the neighbors from California. When I tell my mom about the deer, she tells me she suspects the new neighbors are feeding them.

The next time I see mom, she has confirmation. She herself has witnessed the deliberate tossing of apples into the yard. For the deer.

The REAL question is what is feeding the Californians?

    Feeding deer is against the law. My brother-in-law was feeding deer and the neighbors turned him into the MT Fish and Game. They fined him a $100.

    Have mom take a pic of the offenders and call the wardens.
