From a neighbor in Ward 2
April 1, 2015
I have 5 now adult deer making my back yard there home.
I resent having deer droppings… and possible deer ticks when I have my grandchildren play in my backyard.
All of my yews are gone… 5… 2 of them over 5o years old and 9 feet tall. They tample they dig and they poop
New deer tracking
I had said that we would track where the deer were during February and March, and I think we accomplished this — for at least the Neighborhoods in my network of “Nextdoor” neighbors. You can see that the deer are heavily present in Ward 1 and 2, though there are some cropping up around the city. I was very careful not to enter areas where I had seen deer in the past (like on the corner of Crestlawn and St. Francis), but not during this time period, and I did not enter records sent me from people who said they had seen them in certain places “in the past”.
On the map, I also indicated where deer accidents and deaths occurred and where a coyote was sited.
I would like to create another map now that continues to track these deer incidents AND lets us see where and when the fawns show up.
So, unless you live outside Ward 1 and 2– please no more deer sightings– with the exception of accidents.
BUT everyone– love to see where and how many fawns you see.
Thanks for your help.
