Never, ever ever.
If you're driving at night and just saw a single deer cross the road at the edge of your headlights? SLOW DOWN ANYWAY. Slow to a crawl, if it's safe to do so. A second deer is nearby and will follow it across, every time.
I've driven on rural Midwest highways my entire life. Just yesterday, for the first time ever, I actually saw a lone deer. But that's not the norm, and that's how they getcha.
This has happened way too many times at our local wildlife rescue. People find baby deer or rabbits with no parents nearby and think they're abandoned, so they bring them in to try to "save them". In reality they're just forcibly separating the animal from its mother and greatly reducing its survival chances.
Infant rabbits without their mothers don't do well. Even in professional care settings, they have about a 90% mortality rate. Taking them away from the nest should be a last resort, only when death is guarenteed otherwise.
Edit: Also, PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO TAKE CARE OF A WILD ANIMAL BY YOURSELF! Baby wildlife relies on species-specific milk from its mom, it will usually starve if you don't know what you're doing. We have to keep 4-5 differently mixed formulas to make sure every species is getting fed what it needs. If you keep it for more than a few days, it will become accustomed to humans and that will DESTROY its survival chances. Also, with many animals, it's often illegal! P... keep reading on reddit ➡
Soon after the announcement of Lillia, The Bashful Bloom, controversy started when one League player and Youtube commentator TheDiming posted a tweet to his account. It read:
> "Just looked into it. And yup. Deer are able to run at speeds up to forty miles per hour and jump ten feet into the air. Their kicks are insanely powerful and able to drive off larger predators with ease. Yeeup. They're forcing 'it' into League now, boys."
Players, who were at first content to have another nice face in the game, realized that Lillia had wider, stronger legs than they do. Below are a compendium of tweets from the League community reacting to this news.
> CoDPiece92 > "Just saw that Lillia supposedly has muscular legs. Thinking about it, it would definitely make more sense if she had flamingo legs, or perhaps a deer body with four thinner, more realistic human girl limbs. As it stands, just kinda confused and hurt."
> CHxXxUD > "No. No way. I want Riot to release... keep reading on reddit ➡

Beer nuts are always over a dollar, deer nuts are always under a buck.
Goofy, I know, but still makes me laugh 20 years after I first heard it!
ETA: GUYS! Thanks so much for the upvotes, I've never had so many! Y'all made my night!
I see images of deer/mountain lions etc in peoples yards. Is this a common occurrence? Does it only happen in remote areas next to mountains/forests or do animals wander into the outskirts of suburbia?
ETA And what states does this happen in? ETA2 Wow I didn’t realise deer were so common
I was at your typical bar with two of my buddies. I smoked a bowl before, solid 6-7 and as we just ordered our food, a girl from the table across comes over and sits next to me. She tells me her friend thinks I'm really cute and that I should go over and talk to her. I looked at her thinking that there were hidden cameras and was waiting for the joke. I stammered out a "T-h-hanks" and didn't budge from my seat for the rest of the night.
This is meant to be a funny post, but it reminds me how bat crap crazy things are. We just moved into a new house, and 4 deer have been hanging around very close to the house. I haven’t done much landscaping because a bulldozer has been working around the house so there is a lot of high grass around the perimeter of my house, so they’ve had plenty of areas to eat and hide. So I go to get the mail, I turn around, and there is a deer 10 feet from me. I’ve been hunting for 10 years and have never gotten this close. I went to walk back to the house, and it started stomping. (That means it was challenging me, based on what I was taught) I turned around and walked away. Then I thought “ I might have to carry my gun in case of a deer attack”. I stopped and thought about this, and thought of the absurdity of that thought. Have things gone so crazy that I might get attacked by a deer in my own yard? What in the world is happening.
Update: That deer is on my list, it will be taken care of duri... keep reading on reddit ➡
