    You can't blame the deer for protecting its newborn fawn. In the deer's mind, it was surrounded and just needed to get out. That said, I hope the dog and cat are ok.

    That deer would have had several rounds in it from me. I need to show this video to alot of people that think wildlife is just cute and fuzzy creatures.

    One of the many reasons I'm always armed - wildlife.


    I hope the dog was ok. The thing wasn't even facing the deer when it was attacked. I love dogs and it's too bad no one there was able/willing to do something for it.

    And what was the cat thinking, trying to hang out with a fawn? Stick to your own kind!

    If nothing else, the video shows the misguided mindset of how to deal with wildlife. A doe will leave her fawn in a safe place as she forages. But the very concept that a safe place is a good size neighborhood and the parked car is the best palce shows what we are doing to wildlife.

    They are wild animals. They shouldn't be that comfortable around humans. Wild animal with a comtempt for humans is not a good or healthy thing. In the scheme of things, humans are both predator and prey. A deer is further down the ladder and is usually prey. But you see it more and more. We ban wolf hunting and then there are wolves attacking livestock and the occassional dog- at least in one Northern state where it's becoming an issue.

    Here in CT, we are seeing bear and moose again. Both are finding it perfectly okay to wander around in residential areas. Moose and bear are not fuzzy little cute creatures. They're dangerous.

    I won't even go into the coyote and mountain lion problem. Anyone with any google-fu can see what those do across the country.

    Now, I'll be the first to say, I don't mind a deer in my back field. It doesn't mess with my horses. But the day it goes Chuck Norris on the dog is the day the deer dies. Likewise, coyotes and foxes on the prowl for our cats. 55 grains work well on those- for the moose and bear, I'd up the caliber and bullet weight.

    I just found out that there are badgers living under the road that I live on. We just moved in.

    Badgers are mean, mean, mean, nasty little animals. I've heard stories from farmers nearby about how they've broken dogs legs, killed dogs, and bloodied horses and cows to the point where they are put down or died from blood loss.

    If I ever even SEE a badger in my yard, I'm shooting it. They're dangerous.


    I think it's unfortunate that it's that way, but that's how it is.


    And I read the description of the video on the youtube website; it said the dog walked away limping, but has made a full recovery. And the cat is fine.

    I don't think my dog woulda taken a whoopin' like that first of all. But I'm also not going to go cracking rounds off in a neighborhood to protect a dog from a deer. Even my own. Too much risk.

    Or course, I will shoot an interior wall with almost no provocation, so maybe my priorities are messed up.
