Urban wildlife

A look back at last week’s doe in downtown Toronto.

This was no crazed, caught in the headlights beast trying to figure out how to escape the ever shrinking perimeter being set up around her.

She may have been content just to stay there until it got safer to leave, except for all the fuss being caused by the crazy humans. In, er, hindsight, we may have been better off summoning a deer whisperer to try coax the animal back from whence she came. Maybe a police escort.

I’m only half joking. With all the time and resources expended on the effort, these alternatives would have been cheaper. Neither, of course, would have been practical.

But certainly these options would have been more humane than tranquilizing, tasering and then relocating the deer, which may die anyway from the associated stress.
