White-tailed Deer – 5/1/24

Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Date: 5/1/24

Observation Time: 12:10 p.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

Common Name: White-tailed Deer

Scientific Name: Odocoileus virginianus

Comments: White-tailed deer are common in Sharon due to the absence of top predators such as wolves and cougars. If the deer population becomes too high, they will starve. This doe was still gaunt from the privations of winter. She did not seem too concerned about my presence.
