The grasslands around Stump and Nicola lakes are prime deer country. They were once vast expanses of contagious landscape. Now, of course they are dissected by roads and fences. Thankfully, our barriers prove little impediment to most wildlife, such as this mule deer, which clears this barrier with grace.
I watched a herd of about 75 deer cross this fence on Saturday, one by one in a single file line. Each deer followed in the footsteps of the previous deer, and none of them so much as touched the wire. Amazing.
