Deer spotted near Allied Arts

 

Menlo Park resident John Patun sent the Almanac this photo of a solitary deer seen grazing Oct. 12 at about 11:50 a.m. at 505 San Mateo Drive near Middle Avenue in Menlo Park. The deer "jumped over the bushes into the front yard," said Mr. Patun, who said he was surprised to see it.

Mr. Patun,

Feel free to drive my neighborhood.
I will introduce you to a family of deer living in my neighbor's back yard.
They often come out to eat my roses.

Unsurprising.

The deer are looking for food and water, exacerbated by the drought. They are following the various creeks into more fertile areas, in this area populated towns.

Likewise, their predators -- mountain lions -- are using the same route: creeks.

This is simply nature in action.
