It is a rare day that my eye does not take in a deer, and often those "dear deer" are on my property or on an adjoining neighbour's land.
These sensitive creatures are trying to survive on what little vegetation exists here in rocky land.
With no natural predators they multiple. And with their population growth comes more Lyme Disease.
Knowing that many of my neighbours have contracted the disease, and several who did not get diagnosed for ages, I find myself separated from my own desire to spread my wings or even sit in the grassy areas where the deer roam.
What I wonder can we do to alleviate the disease and protect the "dear" deer?
