A Deer In The Woods
I stop because I don't want to scare them. I learned awhile ago that if I stop where I am, and don't move towards them, the animals are less likely to run away. Alternatively, it's probably just as bad to run from an animal. If you run, the animal would be more inclined to chase you.
Any animal can be dangerous, even this gentle looking deer. So if you would rather not take the risk of encountering a dangerous animal, the best thing would be to make a lot of noise while you're alone. I don't live in a place where there are animals that would normally present a danger, so I always stay as quiet as I can. That's why I see so many animals like this deer.
My new camera has a special button on the back for recording video. I don't have to switch to a special video mode; all I have to do is push the record button, so it's quick and easy for me to get video now. So I have a new episode of Rat TV for you today featuring this deer.
There's something else about this deer that I haven't revealed yet. That will have to wait until tomorrow. I have a terrible secret to tell you about what happened next. I don't know that you will want to see this, but I have another video coming tomorrow.
Nature Center Magazine - Monday is the day we bring you the Cool Nature Video. This week we are featuring another deer. This time we'll see what happens when a deer is provoked into violence. You may or may not like what you see. I found it kind of amusing. Go watch it and see why.
