Poor Bambi: harding walking on that icy snow

The poor deer in our backyard, this is how they walk on the crusty from the ice rain. Several inches of ice, over 30 cm of snow. It is not a good mix.

It's a terribly difficult to walk out in the open. Poor Bambi breaks suddenly through the snow. I fear we'll have some injured deer if this doesn't melt. Maybe we can hope for some snow on top, but the lower sections have melted.

We had a deer in our yard in April, 2011, with a broken leg. There was nothing we could do about it. Don't watch if you are squeamish.

No doubt some of these animals will be lost. It's a struggle for them to get enough to eat.
