WILDLIFE — A leftover trick from Halloween is no treat for a whitetail deer near Newman Lake, where it's been lured by human food sources to the danger of human garbage.
The deer has a kids' Halloween bucket stuck on its face and the strap dropped behind its head, locking it on so it can't eat.
“These deer come every night to our house here in Newman Lake to hit up on our bird feeder and then go out to the horse pasture to pick up any hay then to on the creek on our property, said Diana Sellers.
Calls to vets and Fish and Wildlife officers have not generated any help, Sellers said, even though they know the deer has been entrapped for at least two days and is “trying desperately to eat.”
“ My kids are begging me to find someone to help,” she said.
