+Acc-Risk and Snarflax Posted September 22, 2002 Share Posted September 22, 2002 For several years, I've had a mother deer that's visited my house, and this last summer, she gave birth to 2 little deer in my backyard... (I have more photos of the whole process if anyone wants... They're kind of nasty but it is deer-childbirth which most people don't get to see...) Deer Pic The other story is that my neighbors behind me are gangster clownboats from hell, and they have several dogs that will eat your face, therefore, I've had to keep the gate closed in the backyard so that I don't have to shoot my neighbor's dogs while they gnaw on my leg. The problem is, my deer friends are beating the sh*t out of my gate at all hours trying to get in. Last night alone, I was woken up at *least* 6 times to the banging, and at some point she broke the latch and made it in... This morning I fixed it and just now, she banged on it again, (she's now grazing in my front yard...) Any ideas on how to make her stop? Can I spray something nasty smelling on the gate that she'll find repulsive? Edit: the night she gave birth, Newton (yes I named them) fell asleep under my window... here's a pic... Newton and mom I spent half an hour petting him... I didn't think he was going to make it as he was really small compared to his sis... And before you yell at me for petting deer... The mom knows me, I feed her by hand... Newton I know I'm derailing my own thread... but there's something cool about being so close to wildlife that you can hang out with their 12 hour old young...
