Tough times

We complain a lot about the weather, but, at this time of year, the buck deer have to put up with people shooting at them, cars speeding by on roads they need to cross, as well as skirmishes in the deepening snow with each other.   My son-in-law caught this buck limping across his backyard last evening.

The buck was moving slowly trying not to put any weight on its injured left front leg.

It’s difficult to cross icy lakes and streams on just three legs. Victim of a hunter or another buck, or perhaps a car?
