WILDLIFE -- Washington Fish and Wildlife officers responded to a Newman Lake residence today after reading my blog item about a deer with a Halloween bucket stuck on its face.
The whitetail and her two fawns had come into the family's barnyard three nights in a row, so they know she had gone at least that many days unable to feed.
Unfortunately, the deer has not showed up for two days.
Wildlife officers said they received no calls about the deer in distress.
"This is the type of thing we would respond to," said officer Dave Spurbeck, who talked to the residents this morning.
"They have all of our phone numbers now in case the deer shows up again."
