Oh Deer

Monday morning I'm looking out the back patio doors and I see a deer in my neighbor's yard caddy corner behind me.  I tried to take pictures but it saw me and it went on the other side of their shed.  I called the neighbor and told her there was a deer in her yard and while I'm talking to her on the phone she looks outside and says the deer's leg is hurt.  Then it comes back where I can see it and it's limping.  The neighbor calls the police and the deer is eating but can't stand on the one leg.  The police come and my neighbor tells them not to shoot it in her yard just that she wanted it out of her yard.  The police start going back and the deer and the police have a stare off (kinda like me and the squirrels in that one AlphabeThursday post LOL).   They start going a little towards it and believe it or not the deer jumps over the fence on three legs and takes off.

The police said they were at an accident earlier where a car and deer had an accident so we're thinking this might have been the deer.  I went to the front and the deer was headed towards the woods.

Here's the one picture I got but you have to click on it, because I didn't have time to zoom in on it before it saw me.  I was so excited when I saw the police come then that I forgot all about the camera.  If I would have had my wits about me, I probably could have gotten a shot of the deer jumping over the fence.  Oh well, hopefully, the deer will be okay.
