Animal Lover's Rejoice! by peripatetically on 16 March 2009 5:38pm

Texans are known to have everything BIG. I'd say these folks have big hearts! God bless 'em!

As long as the meat wasn't venison. It had to be a wildlife park, normally deer are not that tame. They are in Sabino Canyon, I have had deer walk with me on the trail.

It sounds like birdseed or some other morsels of dry food being scooped onto the plates rather than venison or another meat, Mike. The deer in our neighborhood are extremely tame but I can't say I've ever tried inviting them to the table. They don't run away and have stood rather close to us though. Also, with all those plates, I wouldn't think it was a park. Don't know that many campers who load up on plates when they go campling. (They didn't sound or look like throwaways.) I just suspect this might be a rural farm where these folk live. I could be wrong though.

Couldn't see the video but that is probably something to do with my computer at work.

Purina Deer Chow?

In California, out in the wilderness, some wild animals are very tame, because there are lots of hikers and who can resist a wild animal begging for a handout? (Except bears; everybody knows NOT to feed the bears, because they become unbelievable nuisances.)

It's probably best not to feed wild animals, even when they're brave enough to take food from you. Even if they don't become nuisances or become dependent on an undependable food source, if they're less afraid of humans, they're more likely to become prey for hunters.
