My daughter sent this photo taken on her run in a south Denver suburb. She wasn't more than 1/4 mile from major traffic areas. Seeing the doe was a nice surprise, although worrisome for the deer. But the buck! I've never seen a buck even out here in the boonies!
Back in September she took her kids to school to discover the school was in lock down. No, not guns, a school bus full of kids and their driver spotted a bear in the neighborhood park. No kidding. Later in the week he was tranquilized in a backyard a mile from her house!
It's good she runs with her cell phone, but maybe she needs a holster for a big spray can of bear-b-gone.
