Deer are Everywhere!

The local deer herd has been taking a pounding over the past two weeks as the late winter sun has melted snow cover back from the edges of roads and highways around the region, exposing bare ground and grass. Deep snow remains in the woods and deer are lured to the edge of the road to feed where they come into deadly contact with motorists. One driver told the News that he counted five dead deer along Route 28 on a trip from Margaretville to Delhi last Wednesday morning. — Photo by Dick Sanford
