I just don't expect to see a mangled deer by the side of the southern loop of I-435. And yet, I did today - right about State Line Road, which seems rather built up for deer. Not quite as bad as Metcalf, but close.

But that's not all! There was another one at the curve between I-435 East and I-435 North.


I thought the hormonally-induced stupid season for deer was the fall.

'Sall right. ;) I do seem to remember something about trying to avoid turtles on one trip or another.

The arrival of lots of tempting spring flowers and plants brings them into urban areas for munching this time of the year.

Ah, tender plants. My mother has a bit to say about deer, town centers and young veggie gardens just disappearing from behind 2 foot rabbit fencing. :p

When I still owned the 2200 W. 74th Terr House

and used it as rental property, my tenant got a good photo of a small herd of does and fawns grazing in the backyard. At approx. 75th and State Line.

AND back when conquest was at the old HoJo at 6th and Washington, I spotted a doe on the verge of the upper parking lot, nursing her fawn. In downtown.

KC has a lot of green space, i wouldn't be surprised if there were deer in some parts near our neighborhood now in Hyde Park. there are cottontails, squirrels, possums, skunks and raccoons (our neighbor has raccoons in his attic.... Jim saw a 'coon arm dart out of the gap in the soffit to dip water out of the gutter... Yikes.)

I saw a half dozen dead deer by the side of the road between Joplin and Columbia week before last. It may be that more humans moving to the country have forced them to look for new places to eat.

That is true and this is the time when the results of that stupid season spring forth and have no idea how to deal with the world. So Spring there is another rash of road kill as the fawns start moving and the does try to teach.
