What’s for dinner?
While humans have been complaining about The Longest Winter for quite some time, we actually have it pretty easy. Although they may be expensive and/or hard work, we have options for heating our homes. The same with eating — we head to the store and grab whatever we like. For a special treat, we get some takeout.
Deer, on the other hoof, don’t have these luxuries. Sure, they are outfitted with some pretty durable, all-natural coats, but the food and shelter aren’t automatic. Even a rugged fur coat can’t be that comfortable against sub-zero temperatures and whipping winds. I’m guessing that, in the past few years, there are plenty of deer who decided that heading south during the winter months wasn’t an idea that’s strictly for the birds.
