Lady said,

"I took this video at my son's house in Hugo, Minnesota. My son was going to get his mail and I noticed the deer approaching him, so I quickly grabbed my phone and started to record. I couldn’t believe it when she saw me and came right over to me, I’m sure to see if I had any food. Shortly after, my son’s girlfriend pulled up in her car and you can see from her reaction how amazed we all were. The doe quickly stuck her head into the car and started to munch on some french fries. Cars passing and neighbors quickly took notice of this crazy and awesome experience."

I suspect she was already used to being around people, probably being fed by them.

It won't be cute if she hurts someone, is hit by a car, is fed something that will kill her, or someone's dog attacks her. This isn't awesome for the deer.

Awhile that's an adorable video, it's not really safe for the deer to be that comfortable around people or around populated areas. Could get hit by a car or (un)intentionally poisoned by someone.

So, there is another deer who will end up dead because some people can't leave nature to nature.

Adorable Deer Sure is Friendly



This isn't a disney movie. This deer will likely be killed for being too close to people. It will be considered a nuisance animal.

While that deer's comfort around people is certainly unusual, deer are quite adapted to urban areas. There they find plenty to eat with little hunting pressure. And roads are a common feature in deer environments. The estimated number of deer-vehicle collisions annually in the United States is well over a million. I've hit three of them.

At any rate, that deer's behavior is not conducive to its survival.

i agree, feeding wild animals is never a good idea. I blame Disney (Awww,'innit it cute?)

Eh that deer doesn't have much hope in any case- either it will stay wild and be shot by hunters, stay wild and be hit by a car, stay wild and be mauled by the local predator, or be friendly with people and get free meals, then get shot/hit/eaten just the same

Deer have tough lives!
