Black-tailed deer survive

By February 26, 2014News

Never feed them as they become familiar with humans and it can cause their death, also the demise of your favourite rose bush!

The deer were a vital part of the survival of the First Nations’ people, especially in the early times. All parts of the animal were used: horns and bone for tools and weapons, meat for food, and hide for clothing and shelter.

Despite everything, the Columbian black-tailed deer lives equably beside us humans here in this area, giving us an “ah” moment when we see them alongside the river path or in the trees.
