    I`d be very upset if this happened to my dog, but it`s not the deer`s fault. The cat and dog shouldn`t have been out of the house when the deer were out there.

    But deer are so cute, like polar bears and panda bears. How could they be dangerous? :)

    I used to work in Pasadena with about a dozen deer by my office, they bite and kick all the time. Mostly when people feed them or try to pet them, i.e. treat them like pets.

    I deer hunt and this doesn`t surprise me a bit. It is a mule deer and they get big. I have friends and family who have been kicked by injured deer. One of the 1st things dad taught me about deer hunting was to not let them get close enough to you to kick you or to not corner them. I`m just glad this wasn`t some kid who got attacked. Pui is right, that dog should not have been loose, but it kind of shocks me the dog could not react any better than that. It must been a pretty old dog. If this happened to my Austrian Shepard he would have been running circles around that doe and taken her out 1 leg at a time.

    Oh, and I love how the little one sees the dog and hides itself.

    Most wild animals, and some domestic ones, will do anything to protect their young. Even birds who feel brave will dart in a peck out the eyes of whatever they see as a threat. Including humans.

    I`ll guarantee you if anyone had approached the deer they would have at least got the poop kicked out of them and maybe even killed.

    Christ I hope that dog lived. Owner`s fault, of course.

    When you buy a dog or a cat, you make a deal to train them and protect them.

    Dog was wandering freely, wouldn`t come when called and then she thought shouting at the deer was sufficient to protect the dog.

    Three big mistakes on the owners` parts.

    That fawn would have been orphaned if that was my dog, i would have got my buck knife out and had me some venison that night. MMMMMhmmmMMMm To all that say the dog was stupid, imagine something with four legs comes out of no where and starts kicking the poo out of you knocking you down, unless your a ninja you are not going to get up right away. The cat at least knew the deer was there.

    I`m curious as to why the deer would attack the dog, when the cat was right there?? any hunters or people with Deer knowledge know anything about it.

    it`s very intriguing! Mainly because I would think a dog does pose more threat than a cat, but he wasn`t advancing, that I cuold see, and I didn`t hear him barking or anything. O_o

    I`m curious as to why the deer would attack the dog, when the cat was right there?? any hunters or people with Deer knowledge know anything about it.
    In evolutionary terms, dogs are just wolves. We`ve changed their physiology through artificial selection, but they`re still the same species as a wolf. In the case of a collie, as that dog appeared to be, they`re not even changed that much from their wolf ancestor, at least in appearance.

    The deer`s most prolific natural predator in the wild is wolves... cats not so much. I guess the mere presence of a `wolf` near it`s young fawn was enough to kick-start a defence response in momma-deer, hence the pre-emptive attack.

    Either that, or evolution is a lie and god made deer to be assh*les.

    A dog not on its leash is fair game and part of the natural cycle. And for all those who said they would shoot the deer: You would actually fire shots toward a house in a residential neighborhood? Over a mutt?

    deers ass would have been kicked. at 230lbs, 6`3 and with years of boxing/martial arts behind me would not hestitate for a second to attack the deer back. Saw a hunter get attacked by one that reared up and started smacking him with his hooves for about 3 minutes as it chased him around, did almost no damage aside from bruises and small cuts. That is a small price to pay to stop it from killing your dog.

    An urban setting and deer don`t mix well. And those who ask why there it wasn`t shots fired, probably cause the Department of Forestry and Oceans wasn`t called. That and it`s illegal to hunt in municipalities.

I don`t blame anyone for posting it, I just wish I had read the caption a little more carefully. *shudders* Poor thing.

    If you double click the video and go to youtube`s sight you can see comments put up by the person behind the camera. He said that the dog had a limp but recovered(he thinks), and that the dog was not his and that it was reported but nothing was done.

    Hell yeah DrHorrible seems to be the only one that got it right. I have a dog and no doubt I wouldn`t just stand by while it was getting beat but I can`t sympathize with people who either let their dog, a predator animal, out when there`s obviously a stressed prey animal (she`s circling around like mad, trying to keep an eye on a weak newborn, some creeper cat, the spectators, and the dog) or haven`t taken the time to train their dog to come when called, or even if the dog is trained, they should have called it in as soon as they were aware of the deer. I don`t see how they wouldn`t have been, it seems the fawn had been there a while (the camera cuts) and would have attracted attention.

    Jamie, you won`t be so tough if the deer had 6 foot long antlers to spear you with.
    And I still wouldn`t kill the deer to protect a dog. Either way an animal is going to die, and the deer is the only one who has a baby. Wouldn`t want to have to deal with an orphan deer on my hands.

    SERIOUSLY? why would you not go and help that dog!? that poor thing!!!!!!!
    Feel ya Naz. Reminds me of an incident just last weekend. I was out enjoying the nice weather with my family and a guy with a Rottweiler came along. My 4-year old daughter is crazy about animals, and wanted to pet it. My wife loves rotties (wheras I don`t trust them an inch) and after we both asked the owner if it was OK for our daughter to pet him, if he was friendly etc (and he assured us "Oh yes, he`s a big softie!") then I let our girl stroke him down.

    Mind you, something still didn`t sit right with me about the whole scenario, so I hunkered down next to her while she was petting the dog. Next thing, the f*cking dog took a snap right at her face. No growl, no warning, just went right for her.

    Not trying to be macho here, but I was ready for it (call it parental instinct, whatever), and I immediately socked that f*cker right in the eyeball. And when it predictably turned it`s big brave tail around and fled after taking a snap at a 4-year old, I kicked it right in the balls. The only thing stopping me from chasing it down and pummeling it to the ground (with rocks, if necessary) was my hysterical wife and sobbing, traumatised child behind me.

    Anyways, I guess the point is, if it`s your dog being attacked by another animal, don`t shout at it, get in there and get it the f*ck off. Not to hurt the animal, just scare it enough to back the hell off and teach it a f*cking lesson it won`t forget.

    "SERIOUSLY? why would you not go and help that dog!? that poor thing!!!!!!!"

    They did, you could hear the owner running. At the same time, the mom is in protective mode and she could attact and hurt a person, very easy. The message was loud and clear: "STAY AWAY".

    " Not to hurt the animal, just scare it enough to back the hell off and teach it a f*cking lesson it won`t forget."

    Really? what is that lesson? To not protect its offspring? The same mentality you had when the dog attacked your daughter (which was to protect her) is the same mentality that deer had when it attacked the dog (which was to protect her baby).

    The lesson here is, don`t be stupid and keep your pets away from wild animals.

    To be fair, it`s a suburban neighbourhood. Looks like the family-pet dog was minding it`s own business and the deer and her fawn just wandered in there. The dog belongs there, the deer doesn`t. What are you going to do, keep your dog indoors all day in case a wild deer happens to stroll down your street?

    I still say f*ck that, I woulda *tried* to scare the deer off. Like I said, not with any intention of hurting the stupid bastard, but enough to chase it and it`s baby back the hell into the woods. For one thing, they`d be less likely to be turned into a meat smear on the street by a passing SUV.

    You have to remember deers have been around before we have so that deer is just strolling around what it thinks is her territory. I`m not saying keep your dogs inside, but if you see a mom deer in protective mode, you get that dog the hell out of the way.

    I agree with you about scaring it away towards the woods, but there`s no lesson this animal needs to learn. It`s doing its job and a great one at that. If that mom deer hadn`t done poo about that dog or even the cat, I`d be worried for that baby`s future.

    lpycb42, I think we agree on this, and got off on the wrong foot. I guess when I talk about "teaching the animal a lesson" what I meant was teaching her (and her fawn) to be wary around humans, and to stick to the (ever-diminishing) woods/natural habitat.

    Personally, I would have stepped in and try to scare the critter off. There are many people out there (including many here on this thread, all American, I note) whose first sentiment would be "break out the guns and shoot it in the face!"

    I would much rather argue with a cop or a judge about discharging a firearm in city limits rather than see my dog die because I didn`t do my job and protect it.

    In fact, I hope the locals are using this video to leverage some real response out of animal control; "either come get these things when they show up or I will be forced to kill them."

    That said, I`m upset that the dog was loose and wouldn`t come when called, which falls squarely on the owner`s negligence.

    Someone should have stepped in and stopped the deer. There were at least a few people out there; there were multiple voices. Why didn`t that girls screaming "stop it stop it" stop it herself? I would have taken a hit for my dog if he was in that situation.

    I think that`s where we differ, Mr. Evangelical Christian. I wouldn`t kill it. I`d try to scare it off. But then, I`m a liberal hippy evolution-believing, gay-marriage-supporting, climate change believing tree-hugger. It`s an animal, doing what scared animals do.

    But you go ahead, shoot that bastard. With a hollow point, no less, to make sure the brains get the appropriate splatter.

    Holy crap that video made me hate deers so much... (but not really) Domesticated pets are definitely one of my favorite animals.

    But then again, when we still had our alaskan malamute, my parents took it to the wild for a walk one day, and there were some wild deers and when he (is it wrong to use "he" for a pet?) saw them, he went berserk, his killer instinct just kicked it and my parents just couldn`t stop him. My mom said she at one point saw a deer leg in the air... and it slowly went down, and our dog finally came back all bloody on his snout. I think I loved that dog more than my parents...

    ANYWAY, wildlife in urban areas is always wrong and it spells trouble!

    davymid: I don`t know what the deer population is like in Europe, But over here in America they are overpopulated.

    The main reasons for their overpopulation are, We killed their predators down to endangered levels (Like wolves and cougars) and we have lots of farm land for them to eat from.

    There are more deer in America now then when the pilgrims landed. Source

    "There are more deer in America now then when the pilgrims landed."

    And who exactly are you to decide whether they need to die or not?

    I think the US is big enough to house both deers and humans.

    I mean thank god nobody thinks we`re overpopulated,decides that we need to disappear, and starts shooting us with a .45 for being so fu-cking harmful to the environment. Right?

    lpycb42: You obviously are not well informed about the problem of the overpopulation of the white-tailed deer.

    There are over 25 million deer nationwide, Well more than the land can sustain. There are 40,000 to 50,000 car collisions with deer reported every year, And that number is likely low because half of them are not reported, According to USGS research biologist Brian Underwood.

    It was found that in 2009, about 90 percent of deer ticks tested had the Lyme disease bacteria. The same study showed about 30 percent of ticks tested had babesia, the parasite that causes the malaria like illness babesiosis.

    Also, White-tailed deer are responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage to farmers crops.

    I`m sorry, But the movie Bambi was a anthropomorphic lie by Walt Disney. Educate yourself a little more about it, Please.

    Why is everyone hating the deer? If the people in that area are willing to let deer live in that close proximity to their property, then they have to accept that deer are not domesticated and will protect their young and themselves from threats. It`s stupid to let your dog out when deer are around, they`re ancestors are direct predators to deer and so the deer responded accordingly.

    It`s not nice to see the dog beaten up like that, but it`s the owner`s fault not the deer`s.

    duncstar - I`m sure if the deer was a common occurance there, they wouldn`t be filming it. Chances are, the mother and baby got where they were by accident.

    I actually found it REALLY hard to watch what happened to the dog, especially considering the noises the dogs owner was making. );

    These are fun posts to read! As to who gives up the right to decide whether deer lives, I think the answer depends on your beliefs. If you believe in creationism, God gave us sentience and superiority over animals; therefore God gave us the right. If you believe in evolution, well, we`ve evolved an intellect which gave us sentience and the ability to decide whether other animals should live or die; therefore nature gave us the right to decide by its own natural processes.

    Long live human beings! Oh, and venison. Mmm... deer...

    Kilroy, nice effort at starting a religion debate, try holding your breath until someone bites, I`m sure the quality of IAB`s threads will improve.

    I still stick by my belief that this is not the fault of the deer. There are a number of parties of to blame here, animal control, the neighbourhood inhabitants, and most importantly, the owner of the dog. The deer is a wild animal, doing what it would do naturally, and I don;t blame it, I wouldn`t want a predator approaching my offspring, and I`d defend them with my life.

    I don`t blame the deer for what it did. It thought the dog was a wolf and it was freaking out already. The only reason it waited to trample the cat was because it thought it was a raccoon or skunk or something.

    That said this is very hard to watch, especially when you see and hear the dog`s reaction... he just doesn`t know what to do at all, and how could he? It`s different seeing this attack on a wolf or mountain lion, something that knows when another animal is running at you it`s not to play.

    lpycb42...your arrogance in all fo this strikes a nerve. the mom deer WAS stupid, if she was SOOO protective why wasn`t she there at the beginning of the video? why is she bringing her fawn into a neighborhood? worried about the baby`s future? the mom deer brought it there, and it was nearly under a car. thats a stupid deer, don`t stand up for it.

    the lesson that needs learned is that the next time that deer could attack a dog could be it`s last, i know PLENTY of people who are more than willing to shoot that damn thing in the head including me if it EVER went after my dog. she can protect her baby? fine, i`ll protect my pet.

    bustamovexxx Are you serious? I live in the midwest and see deer in my back yard all the time and I live in a city. As for why the mother "Let" the fawn wander into the neighborhood, How do you know that? None of us can see how the Fawn got their to begin with. Have you thought maybe the Fawn ran away from its mother and the mother came looking for him/her? Happens humans all the time.

    As for the idiots with the Video, Firstly the deer is wild so letting any domestic animal near them is the work of a simpleton. First they let their cat follow the fawn and then it seems their dog is let roam loose on the street. Serves them right the mother deer was protecting its young plain and simple. Doesn`t matter if its the woods or the neighborhood. Remember wild animals were on this planet long before humans.

    One does hope the dog and cat or ok but lesson learnt by the owners. Make sure your pets are accounted for.

Any idiot simpleton in EL knows you don`t treat a wild animal like a domestic animal no matter how "cute" they look. Person behind the vid cam should be sent out in earth tone colors and antlers strapped to her head during hunting season for being such a dumb arse. Honestly, what did she really think would happen?
