Gone But Not Forgotten


During the Cold War, barbed wire and an electric fence divided Eastern Europe from the West, separating the deer population into two groups.

Your Say

I don't know about that, I have seen deer running in the city away from the woods. Maybe they were spooked out of their natural territory but they didn't limit themselves to a boundary. I would also think that the smell of a female deer in heat would be enough for a male deer to think about going where the sent was coming from.

Unless these are good communist deer.
