Deer America: Rewilding begins outside your front door

Source: High Country News

Deer are a common sight here in Ashland, Oregon. And a common source of conflict between residents. Some want to see the deer killed and others (like us) want to see the deer left alone.

Fortunately, the deer have been fairly expressive as of late and one deer penned this letter for High Country News (I transcribed it).

As our local deer writes:

… rewilding is a two-way street. As we become more visible, especially in places you’ve never seen us, you may need to rewild your own worldview. Drive more slowly. Keep your eyes open. And don’t fret if you see us on your lawns. Rewilding is not just about letting a few species run free far away from human civilization. It’s about allowing our world to cross over into your world
