These tiny adorable deer are native to my area. Here are some cuties:
Wow! They are beautiful!
Awwwww! I want one as a pet!
They're cute, like Babmi..
I didn't realize sikas were so small. And you say they are "native" in your area. Does that mean they run wild? Wow that would be neat,as long as the hunters don't go after them!
Sika deer actually are not native to the US, but are from Asia. They were introduced into Maryland, Texas, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Kansas in the early 1900's. In many cases they were originally introduced as ornamental animals in parklands, but have established themselves in the wild. They are endangered now in most of Asia, except for Japan. They do hunt sika deer in some areas.
Were those farm raised ones or wild?
These are a wild herd that has been living on our property for many generations, and have become pretty tame. I can get within 5 feet of them. They are very curious & inquisitive. My horse lets them eat out of her bowl and she shares her hay with them. These deer are well fed and good companions for my horse.
Awww! WHO would eat one of those cute little things??
