“This is an opportunity for people to get involved. Let’s all sit down and talk about how we are going to go forward.”
- Randy Hampton, Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman
The news that the Colorado mule deer population shrank by one third in the last 10 years comes as no suprise. The mule deer in our neighborhood constantly have to work to stay ahead of Man. Urban civilization, especially vehicle traffic and the development around us, can be hard on baby deer. I often find the deer hiding out on our property, as you can see in this YouTube video (also below) and they love to bed down on the compost pile.
