Columbian Black-tailed Deer Odocoileus hemionus columbianus

A Black-tailed Deer ! The deer walked down the road, seemingly unconcerned with being so close to an open car window that revealed an excitedly babbling family and a clicking camera. Little did we know how representative of the park’s deer this one would be. And even less did we know about the taxonomy of the Black-tailed Deer , which turned out to be not a new species of deer for us at all. We saw Black-tailed Deer walking through parking lots.

Animal Rights is Pernicious Nonsense?

Animal Person

Regarding deer: The harm caused by overcrowding of deer herds on limited available lands, to both the deer and humans, is well documented in the scientific literature, which also documents the fact that controlled hunting is not only the most cost effective way to deal with the problem, but the only really effective way as well. Animal activists don't care about the health or welfare of deer herds?

On "The Wild"

Animal Person

And before any hunter can blurt out "Have you ever seen a deer die of starvation in the woods? We hunters are helping the deer," remember that hunters aren't in the woods looking for exhausted, starving, sickly deer to put out of their misery.

On Cat Killers and Mental Competency

Animal Person

Mentally competent people, oddly enough, go around mutilating and killing deer and ducks and cougars, though, when doing so either is in season or some governmental body has decided their numbers need trimming. People in South Florida are still in an uproar over the mutilation and slaughter of 19 house cats (allegedly) by 18-year old Tyler Weinman, who was declared mentally competent and not a danger to himself or others (!).

Animal Ethics

To the Editor: Re “ On the Ground, Counting Deer ” (New Jersey and the Region, May 4) and the efforts of Essex County officials to justify the deer hunt in South Mountain Reservation: When I moved to New Jersey from New York City 13 years ago, I was enchanted to encounter deer in a forest two blocks from my house in South Orange (which abuts the reservation). The fault does not lie with the deer.

Are We Much Better than Michael Vick?

Critter News

But the rest of us rat-killing, horse-racing, lobster-boiling, deer-hunting carnivores should take the planks out of our eyes before trying to remove the speck from Vick's. This is an excellent opinion piece in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The author, an assistant professor of sociology at Tulane University, poses some important questions. While I don't agree with everything he says, I do think he makes some legitimate points.

Animal Ethics

It’s time to stop pandering to hunters and the gun lobby and turn to humane measures to control the deer population and outlaw this barbaric pastime. To the Editor: Re “ Locavore, Get Your Gun ,” by Steven Rinella (Op-Ed, Dec. 14): To the animals being slaughtered, it does not matter whether their killers are local or whether they will be eaten or displayed on a wall. Their suffering is the same.

Returning to St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge

10,000 Birds

Deer wade into the shallows to munch on marsh grass, trailing fawns behind them. The summer of 2019 will forever be defined by my move to Tallahassee. Though only three hours from my previous hometown, this relocation was still characterized by the endless sifting through things (do I take this? do I leave that?), bickering with my husband, and starting a new job before finding a permanent place to settle down. Needless to say, there was little time left over for birding. Until now.

Summer Birding at Conboy Lake NWR

10,000 Birds

A deer watches me as I watch it from the observation platform. I recently drove from my home in Portland to Conboy Lake NWR in southern Washington for a birding day-trip.

According to eBird , just over 200 species have been observed at the refuge and just under 1,000 checklists have been submitted.

Snowbound Birding

I remember getting stuck in deep snow (but managed to free ourselves easily), also that pure bliss – having a hot coffee in the car, seeing quite a few Roe Deer and several Brown Hares , White-tailed Eagle , a bunch of Common Buzzards and Hooded Crows in a field – must have been next to some less fortunate animal that we couldn’t see from the road…. The entire world, it seemed, was buried under two feet of snow.

In New York and Chicago, they’ve been pretty mundane—a White-tailed Deer here, an Eastern Cottontail rabbit there. Ditto for the Mule Deer who stood still for a few photos before bounding away.).

J. Baird Callicott on Misanthropy

Animal Ethics

The preciousness of individual deer, as of any other specimen, is inversely proportional to the population of the species. Some indication of the genuinely biocentric value orientation of ethical environmentalism is indicated in what otherwise might appear to be gratuitous misanthropy. The biospheric perspective does not exempt Homo sapiens from moral evaluation in relation to the well-being of the community of nature taken as a whole.
