Sucks to Be Him

So we're in Colorado at J's dad's house when I spot this dude out the window last night.

(That's a purple volleyball net complete with carabiner.)

Poor guy is local celebrity and has my FIL's house on his daily rounds. The powers that be have decided to just leave him alone as he'll be shedding his antlers soon anyway.

Am I totally lame to be feeling all "poor Deer, someone should really tranq him, unburden him, and release him completely dumbfounded and freaked out back into the wilderness?" Never mind, just typing that all out verified my own lameness.

That was my gut reaction too. My FIL said wildlife officials are worried about the stress it would cause when it does not seem to be hurting him.

Poor guy.
