About sunrise this morning, I was out for my daily exercise run. At the edge of our small town, I spotted 3 does (female deer) just ahead of me. As I approached them (they’re not afraid of humans, since they’re legally protected from hunters), a big buck (male deer) from seemingly out of nowhere, aggressively charged the does.
