For 12 years our Australian Shepherd has ‘escorted’ the herds of deer from our yard into the woods between our house and our neighbor’s house. The neighbor’s family includes a rowdy reckless young man who for years sped up and down the streets on an assortment of ATV’s, dirt bikes, and ‘Crotch-Rockets’. Usually riding without his hands or standing on the seat thru the winding narrow hilly country roads. One morning a Venison Surprise ran in front of his bike’s 85 mile-an-hour ride and at 6:15 am they both lie dead. At 5 pm that evening a family of 7 deer entered the yard for their nightly run to the woods, 3 doe’s and 4 yearlings and our dog in tow. When they reached the edge of the woods they all stopped suddenly. They stood still as statues afraid to go into the woods. Our dog stopped too. Nobody moved. I felt an eerie cold breeze from the woods and I knew the neighbor’s son was in there. The deer never entered the woods that night, they bedded where they stood, and the dog came in the house and wasn’t interested in the chase game that evening.
